I have an infinite love for “kuwaii” (a Japanese slang word meaning cute, cool, etc…) anything via Japan.  Take a look.

The cute darling bentos reminded me of what my parents used to pack my lunches for school.  I had many styles with my favourite illustration and Japanese cartoon characters of course.  The elephant and the monkey are illustrated by Shinzi Katoh.  His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. This bento box features 2 interior compartments (1 with a fitted plastic lid) and a coordinating rubber band to hold it all together. 5.5″ x 3.75″ x 3″h. No more plastic sandwich bags or old storage containers for your lunch or snacks!

Perfect animal mugs are back.  You can learn Japanese as your drink your tea.

We love know your bugs mug.  Come check out all the new “kawaii” via Japan.  Promise more pic of new treasures soon.

Hope to see you soon.  Ta, ta.

Come in and check out our new maptote! They were created by Rachel Rheingold, a fashion stylist, and Michael Berick,  a cartographer. After a trip to Europe they decided they wanted to make something together. The bags are made in Brooklyn , NY and they strive to keep their production local as possible. The totes are made of cotton with a silk screen print.

Stop by and say hello to the IDOM crew. Have a good Friday!
