New Kawaii Artists, Designers & Makers Shopping Guide

Posted on


Our guide to the best kawaii shops worldwide has been around since the beginning of SCK so it’s long overdue to add a guide to all the incredible kawaii artists, designers & makers we love for handmade products and unique characters and designs.

Some of our purchases (clockwise from top left):
Myostery, The Pink Samurai, Tasty Peach Studios, KiraKira Doodles.

These shops are all recommended by the SCK writers from personal experience as we’ve only included shops we’ve bought from ourselves. They cover a big range of kawaii products from handmade ceramics and craft patterns to enamel pins and comics. Everything is produced on a small scale and you get to support the artist/designer directly.

Most of my enamel pins are from kawaii artists – leave a comment if you’d like to know who made something.

If you’re tired of searching Etsy and Instagram for cute new artists, I hope this new guide will give you somewhere to start and you’ll find some new shops to love somewhere near you. You can also browse our Cute Shop Alert! category for more kawaii artists, designers and makers that we haven’t personally shopped at yet.
