On March 31st, 1889, the Eiffel Tower celebrated its grand opening after taking just over 2 years to complete, and to this day it remains one of the most iconic monuments in the world. To mark this special day, check out the many lovely products we have of this incredible structure, such as Eiffel Tower fabrics, Eiffel Tower stationery and more!
We are really excited to be celebrating our 9th anniversary with you! We decided it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of the product trends we kept up with over the years, as well as some that we’re keeping up with now!
One of the earliest we noticed was the Rockabilly trend. As a result, we stocked gloves, T-Shirts, bags, wallets and more as customers were looking for stylish, edgy, nostalgic pieces that were both classic and contemporary.
We then moved on to Tenshi Neko products. This was similar to Hello Kitty and was what actually moved our company towards cute and kawaii products. Tenshi Neko products were super popular and we had many customers who loved its cute and quirky appeal. At about the same time, we also had a lot of customers who were simply crazy for star scarves (we now have lots of star fabrics instead!) so we made sure to stock plenty in different colors and of different material types. We also moved towards stocking Japanese stationery as we noticed a number of customers looking for kawaii products in this category too.
Then came the trend of clay products, for DIY projects, and arts and crafts. This is actually still a big, continuing trend as many of our customers enjoy crafting. We made sure to keep up by adding items that could be used for DIY craft purposes, such as miniature food items, liquid coloring etc.
One of our biggest product categories now though, is fabrics. We recognized that many of our customers also enjoyed sewing and were constantly looking for new and beautiful fabrics to work with. Over the years we’ve stocked more and more fabrics from renowned designers and fabric producers such as Robert Kaufman, Birch, Kokka and more. We also expanded our collection of Japanese fabrics greatly.
And of course, we can’t forget one of the most popular type of products at the moment: kawaii squishies! We love that many of our customers are passionate squishy fans who constantly have awesome suggestions for us of what squishies they want, and we do our best to get those products in! We’ve added in squishies from Puni Maru, iBloom and have so many more coming soon!

You may have seen that we have a number of organic fabrics in our shop, as well as many Oeko-tex certified ones such as several of the Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton fabrics, and numerous Copenhagen Print Factory fabrics. But what exactly do these terms mean?
The Oeko-tex standard essentially refers to how fabrics are dealt with, and processed. If a fabric is Oeko-tex Standard 100 certified, that means it has been rigorously tested to ensure it is free of over 100 known harmful substances.
Organic fabric refers to the components used to create the fabric, such as cotton. In order to be considered organic, the component used to make that fabric (e.g. cotton) has to have been cultivated according to very strict guidelines, such as being grown without the use of synthesized fertilizers. These fabrics need to meet the requirement of global standards such as the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) in order to be considered organic, much like the way the many Birch fabrics we have available do.
Oeko-tex and organic are not the same and are not interchangeable terms, as they refer to different practises. However, they’re certainly useful to know if you have a preference for either one.
Check out the many Oeko-tex certified and organic fabrics we have available. Do you tend to buy either Oeko-tex or organic fabrics?
