Tokyo Trip: Visiting Kokka

On a recent trip to Tokyo, modeS4u’s Managing Director (Sandra) and IT Manager (Alan), stopped by the brand new office of one of our amazing suppliers, Kokka. This supplier is well known for their incredibly creative and high quality designs and their new office featured row upon row of stunning fabrics. From floral fabrics, to Echino designs, their office was awash with magnificent colors.

Talking business and checking fabrics can really work up an appetite, so the team at Kokka then took Sandra and Alan out for dinner where they all dined on world famous Wagyu beef!

Check out some of the colorful pictures here!
