During the months of April and May, we had a donation program running where 5% of sales on all Japanese items would be donated to reconstruction efforts in Japan.
Well, you heard our call and answered. Daily we had customers specifically coming by to pick up a piece (or multiple pieces!) of Japanese handicraft. Thanks to all of you, we were able to donate $1050 to Architecture for Humanity.
We selected Architecture for Humanity because we believe that design is essential to everyday life. Reconstruction of a devastated area is a long and slow process, as well as overwhelming, so in order to do it properly, designers and architects play an essential role. We especially like the efforts to rebuild marketplaces, which in turn provide store fronts for merchants who lost their storefronts and acts as a place for the community to come together.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us make a sizable donation to reconstruction in Japan.
