We always love mt (masking tape brand produced by Kamoi), and this time they are holding a selling event at Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan.
This former-girls’ school building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. All over the small and sunny hall was decorated by mt.
We could get latest and limited design mt and a part of basic ones.
And it’s really fun to decorate a plain shopping bags turn into our original ones!

Have you ever know small (and really good, I LOVE the place) Ukiyo-e Ota museum is in Harajuku? Kamawanu, Tenugui speciality branch shop is on the basement floor of this museum.
Because of that, they’re selling some limited-selling tenugui design from Ukiyo-e.
I got “Hiroshige cats” tenugui. Cute and funny cats were inspired from the Ukiyo-e art of Hiroshige Utagawa.
Another one is not only selling at Harajuku branch, but all of Kamawanu shops. The beautiful hand dyed design named “rain”. This tenugui is only selling at rainy day. It’s very poetic.

I stopped by “Shibu-san Acryl (渋産アクリル)” at 8/01/COURT mini exhibition space in Hikarie.
Shibu-san is a coined word from “Shibuya (渋谷)” and “san (産 – means like born or made in)”.
This project is a collaboration of Showa Womens University and acrylic craftsman who working in Shibuya.
They’re showing the laser cutter to cut the products out, and added bend or some hand craft working process.
Dreamy transparent colors were beautiful.

Moji bakeru’s latest series does not came from Chinese Characters… from katakana, Japanese syllabaries.
It would be more fun for small kids, that they may easy to read these animals names.
I got “ネコ”. As you see, it means cat. In this series, we don’t need to put stickers. The animals faces and patterns were already printed.

We always love Masaru Suzuki’s beautiful, lovely and humorous textile design.
Of course we’re looking forward to going to his annual umbrella exhibition.
He has new collection this year, folding umbrellas!
Our new friend of rainy days brings us happy smiles.
