mt factory tour part 3 : mt store and more

mt13

One of the highlights at the mt factory tour was the mt store. New products such as mt CASA and mt tape for kids were launched for the first time. There were also lots of very special limited edition tapes that I couldn’t resist! Above are the cute shopping baskets we used at the store!

mt factory tour part 2 : Installation art by Asai Yusuke

mtart2

One of the event space at the mt factory was an art installation by artist Asai Yusuke. Visitors were invited to participate in his creation by adding colors with mt tapes. The daily progression of this art installation was broadcasted live on mt tape’s Ustream channel during the event period.

I’m off to Kurashiki tomorrow to join the mt factory tour! Will be staying one night in the ‘mt room’ at Kurashiki Ivy Square hotel. I wonder if they will decorate the whole room with mt tapes? I love visiting factories/workshops to see what goes on behind the scenes. Despite my busy work schedule, I decided to take 2 days off as this is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to see how mt tapes are made!

Kurashiki also has some nice stationery and craft shops that I am really looking forward to. Hope to come back with some nice pictures to share!

More pictures from MT Expo 2011. One of the highlights was the ‘Tape By Measure’ room where you could choose your designs and get them cut into 6 different sizes ranging from 6mm to 100mm. They had the industrial MT tape cutting machine and a staff from Kamoi factory to help you cut it. What a cute uniform! I had my tape cut in 100mm width as I am planning to revamp my kitchen with it. Can’t wait!

Wow there is really so much going on in Autumn, it’s hard to catch up! Here are some pictures of the amazing MT Expo 2011 that I went to early this week. Thanks to Hello Sandwich for giving us a great preview on the opening party. I was ecstatic walking into the awesome Dictionary Club Art School that has been fully mt-taped! All the beautiful colors and patterns were truly inspiring. I was also lucky to meet and have a nice chat with the man who started mt tape. What a great experience it was! The event will end on 8 Nov. 2011. Be sure not to miss it if you are in Tokyo!

Besides the spacious workshop area, the mt school for wrapping also had a cafe and a shop on level 2. The mt shop probably carried all the mt tapes that have ever been made. I noticed a few new products that I have not seen in the market yet and got really excited. I ended up buying many things on impulse but have no regrets! After making your purchases, there was actually a corner with tons of free mt tape for you to decorate your shopping bags! On top of that, they had the revolutionary mt x Tepra printer where you could test print your own mt tape labels! How brilliant!
