Valentines with MUJI 2014
I've been a fan of MUJI since I discovered the store in Tokyo in the late 80's. They are a retail company known of having a "no brand" minimalist design philosophy with emphasis on recycling and avoiding waste in production and packaging. In many ways, they were ahead of their time conceiving of this idea when the concept of sustainability was not as well represented in the retail markets. It had meaning for me especially to have an opportunity to do a Valentines gift wrapping workshop with my repurposed file folders at the Muji SF store showcasing how to wrap with minimal and repurposed materials. Special thanks to Muji for the donation to Japan Society's Japan in the Schools program in connection with this workshop and for friends who came by!
