Lately I have been hearing so much about Japanese craft and design. Not something I was very aware of in Europe. Is this because I have not been paying attention or is it really not that much of a 'trend' on the other side of the planet yet?
Anyway, I'm starting to fall in love with some of those beautiful Japanese designs. As in Scandinavian design I think Japanese are also very good in creating very simple but lovely products!
Here's two beautiful rice bowls I got for Christmas from a dear friend. (Thanks again...love them!). Amazingly even boyf seems to like them. Very rare as he's a typical bloke that buys things just because they're functional and he really needs it, not because they are sooooo pretty and you just need to have them!
I bought the little wallet as a present for myself. It is made by a Melbourne based Company called Only Midge.
I just loved the (apparently Japanese) fabric!
Recently my friend spotted the fabric in a shop and she bought some as a present for me. I got it today. I love it so much...
