KNITTING JAPANESE GOODS: Knitting japan, handmade Japanese goods and even a bit of Japanese history are all on the shelves at handmade japans market in London, where they’re selling for as much as £5,000 per item.
The market has already seen a huge surge in interest from shoppers after it opened last month and has been sold out since the start of March.
It is not the first time a Japanese store has been used to market handmade goods.
The UK has had a thriving artisan market in the past, and the market opened in May and has seen sales increase from £200,000 in May 2016 to £2.5 million in the first six months of this year.
In 2016, the Japanese government gave an £18.8 million investment in the market, with a £1.6 million goal of expanding it to 60 stores.
The aim is to boost trade and promote Japanese artisans and their wares.
Some of the most popular products on the market include handmade japonese goods such as pottery, jewellery, clothing and even jewellery for the Japanese emperor himself.
Japanese crafts are renowned for their unique skills and their ability to produce something special from the same materials.
They are also known for their fine craftsmanship.
According to the London Evening Standard, handmade goods are being made by Japanese seamstresses, carpenters, florists, jewelers, fabricators, jewellers and even food processors, with the likes of Ikea, Lidl and Marks & Spencer all selling their wais.
As for the price, the market has seen an almost immediate rise in demand and sales have increased from around £100,000 a year ago to £1 million last year.
