Tokyo Pear is a letterpress studio and shop that got its start in Seattle, Washington and then relocated to Japan in 2007. The brand is owned by Eriko and Darren who decided to introduce independent letterpress to Japan. Their graphics are minimal and show a definite folk art influence. You can follow them on their website and purchase a few of their items on Etsy.

Coveting these embroidered pins sold under the Japanese brand name, Ironna Happa. We don’t know the name of the maker but we do know that she graduated from the Japan Handicrafts Association Embroidery Teacher course and has been exhibiting since 2006. She produces each item with hemp cloth and embroidery thread. You can follow this artisan on Facebook and see more of her work on Instagram.
