Goods from Everyone in Tohoku 「TOHOKU みんなのGOODS」Made in Fukushima


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.
