Another cute shop in Koenji. Malto is a lifestyle store that carries European antique-style household products. I was surprised how affordable some of the items are. They have also successfully converted a old Japanese house into a charming interior shop.
Have a great weekend everyone!

First of all, I’d like to apologize for the lack of updates and a big thank you to all who’ve dropped by to check on the blog! I’ve been back from Hong Kong for a while now but have been busy with the new website and online store preparation. I will be announcing the official launch this week! It’s finally happening!!!
Above are pictures taken from my last trip to Hong Kong. La Belle Époque is a cute little handcraft/zakka/accessories shop located in a very lovely and quiet neighborhood just 10 mins walk away from Causeway Bay. They have a wide range of handmade crafts by local and overseas artists. I was glad to finally see the awesome felt works from In the Wonderland by Koey. I’ve always liked her works and pictures. La Belle Époque must be one of the few zakka shops in Hong kong. Do check it out if you are visiting Hong Kong!

These are some pictures from our last photo shoot. Glee Zakka is a new series of knitted items that I’ve designed for our 2011 Autumn & Winter Collection. They will be available in stores like Loft and Bleu Bluet in Japan this fall. I am happy to announce that they will also be available at our new POLKAROS online store! More updates coming soon!
As a big Onigiri fan, how could I possibly resist getting this set of Onigiri playing cards? It has all the flavors of Onigiri you can think of! This series was created by Layup Design Labo and is now available at their online store. They are pretty pricey for playing cards but the designs are so cute! Besides onigiri, they also have Bento, Toast and Hamburger playing cards! How fun!
