TOHOKU みんなの GOODS (“Goods from Everyone in Tohoku”) is a new charity project supported by Japanese company Tsutaya.
Using Tohoku traditional quilting techniques, the earthquake/tsunami-affected area has created unique and cool woven goods with a beautiful geometrical design.
The goods are all carefully handmade and you can choose from a wide selection of book covers, pouches, tissues cases, handkerchiefs and coasters. Soon you’ll be able to purchase bags as well. They come in three colors: sky blue, brown, and a bright pink inspired in “Hamanasu”, a flower that looks like a Rose.
You can purchase these goods in any of the Tsutaya stores or through their website (Japanese only). Money raised goes directly to help the children in the affected areas.
