Japanese Design Within Reach


Illustration by Naho Ogawa

Ever discover a really unique product from Japan you just have to have?  Only there's just one problem,  the product is only available in Japan and you don't live in or near Japan.  Look no further, your Japanese design coveting days are over.  Spoon & Tamago have found a solution to the problem by offering flash sales.  Each week they will offer a product that is usually exclusive to Japan.

This week they're offering these silicon polar ice cups.  They'll be available to purchase up till June 24th.  Then something new will be up for grabs. Fun!

Even if you're not interested in the flash sales, I recommend visiting Spoon & Tamago.  Primarily, it's a blog dedicated to sharing about all aspects of Japanese design.  I've been following the site for years now and can always count on them posting something unique and inspiring.

When Everly was born,ergo baby carrier I wore her exclusively in my moby wrap and it was absolutely perfect for carrying a tiny,ergo baby carrier canada snuggly newborn and keeping her warm during the winter months - but as she’s grown, it has stopped offering the back support I need to haul ergo baby carrier around a 16 + pounder (not to mention all that fabric is HOT in the NC summertime).
