here is a cute, Southern European-like shop with a pale color scheme down an alley from Harajuku Dori. The verdure of the store front creates a soothing atmosphere even from the exterior. There is an abundance of natural sensations when you walk into the store from areas such as the white walls, wooden floors and shelves, wicker baskets and lace rugs.
Marble SUD’s motto is “Offer items which utilize the warmth of people’s hands and the fun from drawing by hand.” This all-around select shop offers original textile items which tickle the soul of those that see them along with fun items which have been selected both domestically and overseas.
Affiliated shops have the same basic concept with each dispersed location changing their image little by little. This Harajuku location offers a lot of pop sundries with a rich sense of art and culture. The Bambi collection which has been put together proudly over many years is a must see.
This shop which offers textiles that tickle the soul of those that see them does not succumb to trends and can become a topic of conversation.
There are fun items from places all over the world such as Northern Europe, Nepal, Europe and Asia which were found through exploration. This shop is perfect for women who are interested in hand-made small articles from Japanese artists, clothing and different foreign cultures.
