Tokyo Trip: Meeting NIC

During their recent trip to Tokyo, Sandra and Alan (modeS4u’s Managing Director and IT Manager respectively), visited one of the biggest squishy suppliers in the world, NIC. Constantly coming up with more new squishies, NIC is well known for the lovely Cafe de N and premium Cafe de N squishies they help produce. Sandra and Alan had a chance to check out hundreds of the stunning products on display as well as speak with NIC’s design team about current and upcoming squishies.

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!

9 Years of Cool and Kawaii Products!

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!

How long have you been following modeS4u? Whether you’re a long time customer or only discovered us today, we’d love to hear about some of your favorite products and what you’d like to see more of from us!

Thank you everyone for your continued support of us!
