Furuki Yo-Kimono and Bungu Store, two of London market traders from Japan both have very much love and respect for authentic Japanese handwork. They were presenting a 3 day pop-up just before Christmas! You could find a variety of goods inspired by Japanese grandmas’ closet & drawers, and grandpas’ old workshop...
Vintage Japanese kimono dealer Sonoe Sugawara handpicks circa 1920-60‘s pre & post war / art-deco period kimono, folk & workwear and textiles. She has become a source for Western kimono lovers including designers of some of the world’s leading fashion brands and film industries. On occasion her stall is in the Spitalfields antique market on Thursdays.
Japanese Artist Ouka Ueno has honed her expertise in using and sourcing Japanese art materials and tools for many years.
After her passion for Folk Arts and Folk Tales dragged her into the MINGEI (Japanese Folk Art) world, she started to collect items which have more cultural and traditional meaning directly from artisans and introduced them to her London stall in Broadway Market every Saturday.
