meaning: manufacture

製造 == seizou == manufacture
日本製 == nihonsei == Made in Japan

Bottom radical is 'clothing' (衣), top is 'system/control' (制), used here in its meaning of 'cut to a shape'. This character originally meant 'cut clothing to shape', i.e., manufacture clothing. Now it means 'manufacture' generally. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'System for manufacturing clothing.'
