Launched in 2002 in Sapporo, Northern Japan starting out as a shop before expanding to a clothing range - South2 West8 falls under the Nepenthes umbrella of labels.

Encompassing the pastime of Tenkara fly fishing, S2W8 presents a range of technical led apparel and accessories designed specifically to be worn during fishing excursions.  Seasonal offerings are cut from original printed textiles with back boxy fits and the usual Nepenthes twist.
