Japanese Kokka buttons available

Unfortunately, Kokka doesn’t make fabric buttons with their cute fabrics, but we do get lots of questions from customers asking about Kokka buttons. Therefore we decided to make them ourselves. We do have quite a big selection of Kokka fabrics now and many of them are suitable for making buttons. The size of the characters on the fabric are just the right size for buttons. We used our popular Matryoshka Animals fabric and the winter deer fabric for making the first buttons. See below some pictures of how we make those buttons and the finished cute Kokka buttons:

Kokka style bedsheets

I went to Taste, a local Hong Kong supermarket, today and found something really interesting: they had “fake” Kokka bedsheets! The beedsheets’ fabric is copied from the Matryoshka Animals Kokka fabric, the characters are just oversized. Even Kokka is not safe from fakes anymore. Have a look at the photos I took in the supermarket:

New Blog design and Twitter background

We got a new blog design for this blog today! I wanted to have a cuter blog template than the one we used before. Therefore we decided to use one of our favorite and topselling Japanese fabrics as a background picture. It is the pink matryoshka animals fabric by Kokka. At the same time, we also changed our Twitter background to match it to the blog. You can have a look at our Twitter account here: modes4u on Twitter I hope you guys like the new design :-)

Visit from Kokka Japan

Today we had a visit from a Kokka employee because they wanted to show us the newest designs they just released. That’s so super convenient when the suppliers come to your office to show you their newest collection. I must say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE their new collection. There are so many adorable, cute, kawaii, lovely fabrics, it will be really hard to choose which ones we will order. Unfortunately, I cannot order all of them because there is a budget limit ;-) Below you can see some of my favourite new fabrics from Kokka. I hope we will get them for our shop soon.

Delivery of Kokka fabrics from Japan

Today, we received a delivery of almost 40 bolts of Kokka fabrics from Japan. I was waiting for them impatiently because I couldn’t wait to see all the new cute patterns. We got Kokka fabrics with Matroshka dolls, kittens, Alice in Wonderland, toadstool, peach blossom, deers, monkeys, skulls and many more.

We had some fun in the office building a fabric pyramid with all the fabric bolts and took some pics.

New order placed with Kokka

I have another update from Kokka: We sell the fabrics from our first order with Kokka crazily and therefore we decided to place a new order now to prevent running out of stock. We got one wholesale order from a shop in Germany and therefore we can combine the 2 orders, ship them together and save some shipping costs. We ordered over 35 bolts of Kokka fabrics! They will be shipped by ship. I am looking forward to get them, the expected arrival date is 21.10.2009. I will definitely post a blog post when the fabrics arrive. So keep coming back for news!
