After Liberty Fairs trade show, we visited in Brooklyn area.
It snowed in NYC again… we could not see the other side of East River.

While hanging around the area, it would be possible to see some graffiti arts.
That’s our favorite point in Brooklyn area.

One of the reason that we’ve been to Brooklyn area is visiting in Hickoree’s store.

Actually we know each other since their arranging Roberu leather items 2 years ago.
They arrange Roberu items : iPhone leather cases, leather wallets, leather bracelets etc…
Moreover their original selected items are so nice, especially their exclusive items made in the USA and Japan are fantastic.

After Hickoree’s store, we had a small break in order to have a late lunch at the bistro of 1st floor Hickoree’s bldg.
We had a comfortable time and delicious brunch there.

Some good friends come there too.

For example, I have a reunion The Heritage Post from Uwe Van Afferden.
They always write great articles and nice photos on the Heritage Post magazine.
New issue is here.

Last year they come to Tokyo, and around 2 years ago come to Roberu workshop for shooting.
Thanks a lot!

Pip… seed

Pipper… foresight

Pipperoo… wonderful people and things

We introduce some “Pipperoo” that we selected on pipperoo.jp from Japan,
and especially, will bring works that are made in Japan to to countries outside of Japan.

Like a seed will be a beautiful flowers and vigorous trees and plants.
Hope to pips that are made in Japan will be “Pipperoo” in the all parts of the world.
