New Year 2013

January 15, 2013

This year, a pair of “befana” (witches from Italian folklore that deliver gifts to children, much like Santa Claus)
flew in on brooms on January 5th, to help us celebrate the New Year.
They were dressed elegantly in SHIMA-SHIMA clothing and brought us good luck in the form of wonderful opportunities for spring 2013.

First of all, we will be participating at the Maison & Objet show in Paris, from 18~22 January.
Please come visit us at KOKURA STRIPES JAPAN.
Our 5 inmates have been working hard to prepare a collection of items especially for the show.

We anticipate participating in other very interesting projects this spring, and look forward to sharing them with you in the coming weeks!
