Posted September 26, 2019 09:16:40With its signature white floral print and a range of accessories including leather goods, jewellery and fashion, Luxury Handmade Japan has set up shop in Sydney’s CBD.
The company, which sells its goods through its website, is known for its stylish accessories and has recently expanded its business to include a store on Queen Street in the CBD.
In the space of just a few months, the company has created a collection of more than 60 products, including handmade goods, Japanese watches, home decor and fashion.
The store has been named by the ABC’s iTele as one of Sydney’s top 10 best handmade goods shops.
It is a sign of how far the business has come for the former children’s shop that its website is the first to feature a picture of a young woman in a floral print dress.
Luxury Handcrafted Japan is a company that has taken on a unique brand identity, says its owner, Yuka Miyazaki.
It’s not just the name that has changed, she says.
We’re very proud of it and we are really proud of what we’ve achieved so far.
“I was a kid when I started the business, but I think I’ve become a lot more mature.
I’ve learned so much from this, and it’s also brought me closer to the people that I care about.”
Luxurious Handmade goods are all handmade and made by Miyazaki herself, with all the pieces sourced from Japan.
She has been in the business for about three years and says she has had some “big successes” as she has learned more about how to produce and market handmade goods.
“I really believe that I have been very lucky,” she said.
“It’s just been an amazing journey.”
Yuka Miyasaki, left, and her husband, Takashi, right, have built their business from scratch.
They started out making clothes in the late 1990s but moved into making handmade jewellery in the early 2000s.
It has now grown to the point where they have over 100 different brands and more than 100 products.
The shop was designed by Miyako in her spare time.
“In the beginning, I made just one item per week.
But now I’ve grown to have over 400 items per week,” she says of the store.”
The store is a little bit like my life, because I spend a lot of time there.”
Takashi, left in the middle, is the man behind the brand, but is also a full-time employee.
He said he was inspired by the Japanese culture of handmade products.
“There’s so much beauty and so much joy that you can find in making things from scratch,” he said.
Luxural Handmade Goods started with a simple idea, he said, and now has been selling their goods to more than 30 stores around the world.
Yukas design is very much a celebration of Japanese culture, he says.
“We started making a lot out of a single concept, but now we’re all over the world.”
“There is something really beautiful about making things with a very simple hand,” he says of his design.
“When I was a child, I could only make a few things and then I had to find a way to make them myself.”LUXURY AND GIRLIESTONE The store sells handbags and accessories including jewellery, jewelled sunglasses, sunglasses and a wide range of shoes.
The name of the business comes from a word that means “glitter” in Japanese.
The two owners say they aim to provide a unique experience for customers, while still being accessible to all.
They’ve also been working hard to create an authentic and affordable Japanese-style atmosphere, offering their customers a wide selection of Japanese-made products.
Yuka and Takashi have spent a lot time making their product designs.
When they were young, they were making all kinds of stuff from the original handmade clothes, but they have since grown to love creating unique handcrafted items.
The business is a tribute to Miyako’s childhood.
She started out working as a kid and she still loves making things, so she said she wants to bring that love back to the shop.
“To me, it’s really important to make things for the people, and that’s what I want to do,” she explained.
“For the kids, it doesn’t matter if it’s just one pair of clothes, or three pairs of clothes.
They can make whatever they want.
But I want the kids to know that they can make something beautiful out of their own hands.”
The shop is also about sharing the joys of making with other people.
“If we are all together, it really makes the shop even more special,” Miyako said.
