Ribbons, ribbons, I want more ribbons

Our woven ribbons are getting more and more popular, so I decided to “donate” a whole blog post to them 😉 We took some awesome ribbon collection pictures which you can see below. Aren’t they super adorable? Their quality is really good and the designs are super cute. Unfortunately, it is a lot of work to cut them for orders. We tried lots of different techniques and methods already, but we have yet to find a quick, efficient way to cut them. I contacted one of the suppliers before and asked them how they cut the ribbons and if they have any advice for me. But they told me, they only cut them by hand as well. I hope we will find a better way soon otherwise we have to limit the number of designs we can offer in our shop. If you know of any special method to make the cutting process faster, please let me know. I am grateful for any advice.

Day 4 in Japan – Part 2

Next we went back to Shinjuku because I wanted to check out a fabric shop I heard about.

Our destination was “Okadaya“, a multi-level fabric shop I heard about online. We checked out all floors, unfortunately I wasn’t that excited about it as we saw a lot more in Fabric Town in Nippori before already. However, the shop opposite, which also belongs to Okadaya, is totally worth a visit. See some pictures below:
