I was walking around SOHO after I got out of work last night and I saw this window…

How cute! I had to take photos and then of course I had to go into the store… to KITEYA. I have been passing by this store and I always thought it looked nice and always saw some traditional Japanese stuff, but never really went inside before, but I loved it there so much! They carry unique modern stuff from Kyoko, Japan, one of my favorite cities in Japan. The store is filled with Japanese beautiful patterns, fabrics, accessories to name a few. If you are in New York area and appreciate Japanese patterns and traditional arts, you will get a lot of inspiration here for sure.

and I got the heart ornaments! Made with Japanese chirimen fabric. oh, they are having a nice holiday sale right now, too.

  1. How funny! I was just reading about Kiteya in the latest issue of “Chopsticks”, a free magazine about Japanese culture in NYC, which I picked up last night in the awesome Kinokuniya bookstore. Which also has some terrific gift items in stock right now. Thanks for the info about Kiteya; I’ll have to get over there soon. Love your blog too!

  2. Hi Jennifer-

    oh cool – I sometimes pick up “Chopsticks” myself! I haven’t been to Kinokuniya in a while, I should stop by for some gift shopping soon! Thank you for your comment!
