Shopper’s Diary: Analogue Life in Japan

May 3, 2010

Ian Orgias (Canadian) and Mitsue Iwakoshi (Japanese) live in Nagoya, Japan, and operate one of the best online shops we’ve come across: Analogue Life. The duo does an incredible job of sourcing traditional Japanese products that are either artisan made, handcrafted, or produced by small local manufacturers; many of their offerings have been given a contemporary update while retaining their artisanal appeal. Best of all, Analogue Life recently launched an English version of their site and are now offering international shipping. N.B. Prices below are shown in dollars according to today’s conversion rate.
