Modern Japanese Homewares

‘Ichigo’ (pronounced ‘Ich-ee-goh’) is the Japanese word for ‘Strawberry’, whilst ‘Ichie’ (pronounced ‘Ich-ee-ah’) translates as ‘first time’ or ‘once’.

Ichigo Ichie (Jap translation) means “One Opportunity, One Encounter” or “Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur”.

We believe “Ichigo Ichie’ describes our company ethos, which aims to present beautiful, unique and stylish homewares to a UK and European audience.

All of our products are not only sourced from Japan, but more importantly are designed and created in Japan. This is the only way we can assure our customers that they are immersing themselves in high quality, well designed products.
