Kids Gloves by Nobumasa Takahashi (an anniversary giveaway!)


Exactly 1 year ago Spoon & Tamago debuted its online shop. It’s been quite a ride and a huge learning experience, but we’ve loved every moment of it. Writing about Japanese art and design will always be our passion but there’s a certain satisfaction that comes with delivering it to someone’s hands.

To thank you all for your support we’re giving away 2 sets of these adorable Cubic Kids Gloves by artist Nobumasa Takahashi, who also designed the Wasanbon Sugar Skulls.



Unfortunately we weren’t able to get these gloves into the shop for this season (maybe next year!?) but we’re thrilled to be able to give 2 sets away! The “Hinomaru Fujisan” features Mt. Fuji on the left hand and a rising sun on the right. The “Akaoni Aooni” features Japan’s beloved (but sometimes feared) red and blue ogres.

And those little fingers are guaranteed to stay warm. The gloves were manufactured by Fukushin, a Japanese company with over 50-years of experience making gloves. They come in 1 size only (w 90 x h 130mm) and are intended for 2-3 year olds.

Here’s how you can win a pair:

  1. Leave a comment below (if you have a preference, state that as well)
  2. We’ll choose random winners next Thursday (11/27)
  3. That’s it!

If you want to keep up to date with shop news you can follow this twitter account, or sign up for our newsletter where we’ll infrequently spam you with new products and other Spoon & Tamago related news.
