Premium Edition That Embodies “VAIO® Craftsmanship”
VAIO® Z | KACHI-IRO SPECIAL EDITIONLimited Stock
Beauty and appearance befitting a flagship model
VAIO® Z's 3-D molded, full-carbon body is the result of the combined efforts of VAIO® and its partner manufacturers in Japan, bringing their technologies and expertise to bear.
The body has been dyed in lustrous "Kachi-iro" color. The color and textures embody the aesthetic sense of Japanese, and this is a rare product that embodies VAIO® craftsmanship at limited supply.
VAIO's corporate color is deep and dark indigo. In ancient Japan, this color was called "Kachiiro". It symbolizes fortune, luck and victory.
Legend holds that their favored the hue because it led to “kachi”, or “victory”, so they referred to the hue of their indigo-dyed wear as “Kachi-iro”, “the color of victory”.
Full Carbon body in "Kachi-iro" color that creates an expression as it catches the light
The world's first* 3D molded full carbon body embodies the identity of the VAIO® Z. With the VAIO® Z | KACHI-IRO SPECIAL EDITION, we used a specially formulated Kachi-iro transparent paint that takes advantage of the unique fiber grain of UD carbon. Enjoy the deep expression of this material and the way it changes when it catches the light behind the glossy luster, which is reminiscent of lacquerware.

* The chassis of the VAIO® Z is made of sheets of carbon fiber that are stacked and processed in 3-D. The gaps and overlaps in the fibers may appear as scratches due to the characteristics of the material and processing, but there are no issues with product performance. Please note that we cannot accept returns or exchanges due to gaps or overlaps in the fibers, patterns, or colors.
UD carbon improves robustness by combining layers of fibers arranged in a single direction, but at different angles. It has a different texture from cross carbon (shown in photo on left), where fibers are woven alternately, and can exhibit high rigidity against twisting and other forces in the required direction.
In the KACHI-IRO SPECIAL EDITION, a glossy UV coating is applied on top of the paint to give it a luxurious glossy look and a scratch-resistant finish.
