As cliché as it may sound, around here we truly recognize where we came from and where it all started. The “Daruma” was gifted to Afew by a good friend of ours right when the first shop opened its doors. In addition, it has been with us ever since. Call it superstition if you want, but it has brought us luck over the years.
By now, it has become apparent that we feel very much linked to the way-of-living and customs of the land of the rising sun, hence the Afew Goods “Daruma” Collection and its own portrayals were designed by none other than Takumi Ogata, a Japanese Illustrator and Designer that lives in our hometown of Düsseldorf proving that we are committed to authenticity no matter where we’re from.
This drop will be remembered for including a Kimono, hand made in Germany but with an undisputed Nippon feel and look to it. The remainder of the products included in this launch are Made in Portugal from 100% Organic Cotton (GOTS Certified).
The release is set to go down on the 17th of October, so stay tuned as more pictures and further information will be made available shortly.
