i might have to get this cup to drink my tea out of at the office, as we are faced with severe cup politics – don’t use my cup and i won’t use yours kind of thing.

tick tock

i have a thing for old clocks. i would fill my house with them if it wasn’t for the fact that the ticking drives me nuts. one day i will fill a shelf with a row of silent ones. these vintage alarm clocks are from clockwork universe

fog linen work

love the goods from fog linen work


Yumiko Sekine started her first business in 1993 importing used books and house ware from Europe and America to Japan. In her search for more products, she could not find affordable every day linens that she had used during her childhood. She visited Lithuania, a country that grows flax, whose fibers are spun into linen, and has been producing and exporting linen productsto other European countries since the Middle Ages. This led her to contact several linen producers and started to have them produce her own product designs in Lithuania. Her first collection started with only seven items. Now after ten years, Fog Linen Work produces a large line of linen products for the home and linen clothing. Its products are leading and defining the natural life style trend in Japan today.
