Really adorable mini size washi paper tapes have just arrived! Each tape is 6 meter long while the normal tape being 15m (the width of the tape is the same 1.5mm), you can compare the sizes of the normal ones and the new ones in the 3rd and the last images.
These mini size masking tapes are so cute and easy to carry or store, excellent if you want to have many different colours/patterns but don't want to spend fortune buying so many tapes at once! There are 2 sets available, SWEET and VIVID and you get 8 rolls of tapes in each set.
Aren't they cute!?

Recently and newly added to UGUiSU online store, the award winning (GOOD DESIGN AWARD 2008) "Hana Hukin" is a beautiful cotton cloth made of pure cotton fabric formerly used as mosquito netting , a specialty of Nara Prefecture, Japan. Mosquito netting fabric (kaya) has high absorbency and durability and is perfect in dishcloths. The cloths are large yet thin, easily folded for use and then spread out to dry. Over time, the cloths become soft and supple, and eventually, they make good rags.
Hana Hukin is available in 5 colours that are named from flowers ("hana" means flowers): Sakura Pink (Cherry blossom), Ajisai Blue (Hydrangea), Sumire (Violet), Nanohana Yellow and Wakaba Green (young leaf). Each cloth is beautifully wrapped in wax coated paper.
