Orient Industry

Orient Industry is considered to be the leading manufacturer of high-end silicone dolls in Japan 1

In Japan, sex dolls were known as “dutch wives” (ダッチワイフ datchi waifu). Orient Industry started around 1998 to use the term “love dolls” (ラブドール rabu dōru) to distinguish their dolls from the image of inflatable dolls associated with the term “dutch wife”. The term has stuck and is now used generally to refer to any high-end product 2
