A shared love of Japanese craftsmanship between local businesses sees the launch of the JPN Concept Store, a first-of-its-kind Japanese homeware concept store.
The JPN Concept Store is a collaboration between three entrepreneurial businesses (Setamono Tableware, Kitchen Samurai and WAZA Japanese Goods), offering a range of quality products sourced directly from Japan. Combining ceramic tableware, hand-forged chef’s knives and a range of Japanese daily-use goods and tools, the store offers discerning customers the opportunity to buy products exclusively imported to South Africa. The focus is on products for individuals and businesses alike, with a strong emphasis on individuality, quality and durability.
The partners also plan to host small events in the future for those who are interested in Japanese goods, themes and culture. For those who are not based in Cape Town, all three businesses involved run online shops for customers who are further afield.
