No Frills


this no name brand called MUJI, has become a brand of its own. they make everything under the roof, from beds to beddings, pencils to make up, sheets to baskets, bikes to bowls... their concept? simplicity. i've recently bought some green tea from them and using their tea pot and tea cup to make myself the perfect brew. it would probably make sense to review their items one at a time, but it's just too vast. the tea pot i bought has a nice cupped screen for easy cleaning and mess free use. the design is so simple yet elegant. japanese pottery has always been simple and even imperfect by choice. the other item i use frequently is their beer cup. it's completely different from the european beer mugs or american beer glasses. the japanese beer cup actually serves a purpose, and being made of clay it is quite porous. the inside of the cup is not lacquered, leaving it very rough for bubbles to form. the result is a fuller and creamier beer, no matter what brand you choose. it's like the widget in some beer cans (boddingtons, kilkenny, lipton, etc), it changes the texture of your beer and definitely worth a try. i'd have to say it's a little harder to clean and those who are lazy would not appreciate this. they also make great chopsticks and rice bowls, the styles vary ranging from japanese to european. basically, Muji makes simple home equipment, and we love it. cost is usually quite cheap although there are better deals to be found, but what better than a one stop home EQUIPMENT shop? available in the UK, Japan and Hong Kong. for online shopping go to ENGLISH site or JAPANESE site (which has a lot more variety) [equipbug]

pot: 1900Yen

rice bowl: 290Yen chopsticks:158Yen

I really like this post because MUJI is my favourite brand during my stay in Japan! I went there almost everyday and always got something as well. I like its stationary which is simple but cool and cheap. This brand design to serve what I really want, not just a mass product like other shops. Another unbelievable product is cosmetics. It has so many lines from skin care to make up and all accessories with reasonable price. I don't want any Shiseido items anymore when I found MUJI. Heard that its cloths are also nice but haven't had one yet because it's the only thing I found it's quite expensive.

I have found that there're online shops in France and US as well.
