Pop Up Shop

Fog, a gorgeous store in Tokyo, is setting up temporary shop with us! For the next 3 months we will feature many products that are only available to buy in Japan. Stop by when you can.

about fog:

Yumiko Sekine started her first business in 1993 importing used books and house ware from Europe and America to Japan.
In her search for more products, she could not find affordable every day linens that she had used during her childhood.
She visited Lithuania, a country that grows flax, whose fibers are spun into linen,
and has been producing and exporting linen productsto other European countries since the Middle Ages.
She was disappointed to find that there were no linen products for daily use available in the stores there.
This led her to contact several linen producers and started to have them produce her own product designs in Lithuania.
Her first collection started with only seven items. Now after ten years,
Fog Linen Work produces a large line of linen products for the home and linen clothing.
It's products are leading and defining the natural life style trend in Japan today.
Sekine continues to be inspired to create beautiful simple products for daily use.

Pollux Handmade Bags

I remember the first bag Jessica Moriber ever made.  I remember her excitement while describing the thrill of making something with her hands.  It was a special moment.  I also remember my excitement and shock when her first ever handmade prototype bag was handed over to me as a gift that day. That was four years ago.
Today, the collection has grown and she has honed her skills but each bag still feels as special as if it were her first.

Today we did a little shelves!  We've been wanting to change these for so long but just never got around to it.  Subtle but satisfying.
