TOKYO, Aug. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Strategy & Design Labo Inc.

Lastly is to introduce fine Japanese products to foreign tourists.
For the first year 2017, there are wide varieties of line-ups for outstanding products from all over the world thoughtfully selected by different categories: Leather gloves from Czech Republic, Espadrilles from Spain, bags and hats from France, antiquarian book prints from UK, a stylish football brand from the Netherlands, stationary and art prints from Brooklyn, New York, leather products from Singapore, etc.
As for Japanese products, there will be items including collaboration goods from artisans and designers in Tokyo, especially from the Sumida Ward area where the old "Shitamachi" downtown culture from the Edo Era is still alive, mainly for foreign tourists.
DESIGNERS' FRIDGE is planning to introduce new products from home and abroad each month. DESIGNERS' FRIDGE is always recruiting foreign makers and creators that are in search for an opportunity for retail store sales in Japan in addition to their online sales. Direct contacts from those who are interested in access to the Japanese market are greatly welcomed. Also, as a community-based management, they provide Daikanyama area information on top of online item purchases.
