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!

New Kokka fabrics from Japan

We have many beautiful new Kokka fabrics from Japan. Most of them are oxford fabrics, but there are also some super delicate gauze fabrics and our first ever Kokka flannel fabric. We really like the England designs that Kokka has been releasing lately. Check out the fabrics with London buses, Queen’s guards or teapots. We also received many designs that have gold metallic decorations, for example with apples or cherry blossoms.

And there is also news from echino: We now carry the pretty cotton sateen collection as cotton sateen laminates.

We received another order of Japanese fabrics from Cosmo Japan. This time we got this year’s Halloween fabrics and Christmas fabrics already! We are very excited about them because they are just uber-cute and it is so hard to find kawaii Christmas fabrics and Halloween fabrics from Japan.

Blog post about our Alice in Wonderland fabric

Zakkalife wrote another blog post about one of our Kokka fabrics, the pink Alice in Wonderland fabric. She got that fabric a while ago and had some leftover and decided to make cute Alice hairclips with them. I really like the matte finish of the hairclips. Have a look at them:

1st Kokka Fabric order arrived

Today we finally received our first order of Kokka fabrics from Japan. They were sent by courier directly from Kokka’s warehouse and it took only 1 day to arrive. It’s definitely an advantage to be in Hong Kong 😉

We ordered fabrics with prints like christmas deers, matryoshka animals, cute bears, black kitty, toadstools, Alice in Wonderland and matryoshka dolls. Below you can see 2 pics I took to show you how the fabric bolts were delivered. They came in 2 huge long packages wrapped with a very strong paper outside and plastic wrapping inside.
