Mizushima 水縞

Founded in 2006, Mizushima is an indie stationery brand based in Tokyo, Japan. The brand name was inspired by the polka dot lover designer and the shop owner who adores stripes: Mizutama (水玉)means polka dots and Shima-shima (縞縞)refers to stripes in Japanese. Their unique tastes in simple patterns combining with the excellent Japanese craftsmanship are what makes Mizushima stands out among other mass-produced products.
