WHAT WE LIKE
- Products are selected for their positive social adn environmental impact.

- Owner is commited to fair trade, even her guesthouse is fair trade based.
Sometimes it is really nice to give those small shops a voice, especially one that aims to provide its customers with fair-trade and domestic products. Kikuya Zakkaten is a small shop in Kyoto that sells products made from fair-trade and domestic wood. These products range from necklaces and earrings to stools and tables. You will also have the usual beloved brands like People Tree and Sisam Workshop here.
Though modest, don’t feel rushed, as the stories of each brand and series is written out to share with customers. A lot of thought is put in to educate customers about where their products are from, how they are made, and who you are supporting with each purchase.
It is important to note that the company is in no way massive and provides only hand-crafted, authentic items. Although orders can be made through the company’s online store, it is also possible for those who are either living or visiting Kyoto to hop on a bike and have a look to see what Kikuya Zakkaten has to offer.
