Leather shop in Nippori, Tokyo

I went to my FAVORITE leather shop at Tokyo’s biggest fabric town, “Nippori ” to find new leather sample for furoshiki strap. This fabulous shop has started more than 30 years ago.  Shop is very small, but their customers are coming from all over Japan and sometimes making order-made costume for actress/singers. Their advice is friendly, kind, and encourage me a lot.
We will launch new colour of strap in the middle of November!

Presentation at PechaKucha Night #94

When Hannah was traveling in Tokyo in July, we decided to have presentation at PechaKucha Night #94 in Tokyo.

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds.
