Tsutaya stores are all over Tokyo and inside you can find little design jewels to treat yourself.
Goodies for Book Worms > Bibliophilic is a Japanese brand that invites people to enhance their lifestyle with books. They have developed “reading tools” that include books covers, book stands, books containers, bookmarks and mugs. The cat logo gives an extra personal touch to the brand
From Trucks to Bags > Swiss-based brand Freitag is simply amazing. They use truck tarpaulins, worn-out bicycle inner tubes and discarded seat-belts and convert them into highly functional, cool and unique bags at the F-actory. Freitag has developed and marketed several bags for women and men round the globe, in stores and online.
One for the little ones> Lovely wall clocks, wall stickers and mobiles designed by Gomi Tarō, one of Japan’s most prolific children’s book illustrators and writers. He has published over 400 books in Japan and his work has been widely translated into other languages.
Safe Flight! > Akinori Washio, head of men’s brand “Stopover” and women’s brand “Washiwo” has a cheeky pop-up store inside Tsutaya Roppongi (Roppongi Hills) featuring his latest designs. Washio created “Stopover Airlines” a fictitious airline company and designed a whole line of unisex clothes and travel goods that suit everyone’s journey plans.
