If you love the vintage kawaii style of Japanese manga you need to check out this collaboration between Setsuko Tamura and Sanrio. ARTBOX have a nice range of products that feature the Japanese illustrator’s take on Hello Kitty, My Melody and Little Twin Stars.
I think this My Melody pouch is my favourite item. I love all the details with gingham, lace, bows, and fluffy ears and tail, plus it’s useful too.
The Hello Kitty pouch is pretty adorable too though with all those pops of red.
More affordable are these super cute little plastic coin purses at just £6.50 each. Perfect for all your small change.
If you can’t choose a favourite, this pack of sticker flakes is a bargain at £4.50. It includes all three main characters and more icons, all in Setsuko Tamura’s cute style with fancy gold detailing.
Or this memo pad has 60 sheets in 3 different designs packed inside a cute cover. Which character is your favourite?
The Setsuko Tamura x Sanrio collection also includes tote bags, keychains, towels and more. You can buy it all from ARTBOX who are based in the UK but ship worldwide.
