 I would like to introduce you to - Sailan. This marvelous and bold look in design is the nickname I came up with to describe Urban Sailor and Japanese Craft colliding into each other. It's not refined, nor mass produced and the colours display a new dynamic confidence in the makers. The objects may not necessarily be made in Japan but ancient influences from this remarkable country is marked with great sentiment onto the designs.


  1. I like this for an idea, reminds me of when we had to create colour/trend themes at uni. trend prediction was one of my highlights of uni

  2. So excited to see what you all come up with!! SO much fun!! I’m sure you can’t wait to be living here already!
