25-11-2010 Muji the Japanese Ikea

Muji. The Japanese Ikea. Minimalism is its motto. So in keeping with the minimalist feel, I won’t say too much more on that. Except that you can read more about their motto here. Not only do they keep it simple, they also keep it eco friendly. They refuse to use harmful materials and packaging is kept to a minimum. Check out their unisex ankle socks made from recycled yarn. Available in an assortment of cool and crazy colours, they are a super comfy way to get the addiction started. Using recycled cardboard, unbleached cotton and practicing sustainable forestry, you can be sure your furniture and clothing from Muji comes from a good place.
