Here is the little story behind the sale event that will happen on Tuesday, May 14 at my house. I thought it would be nice to introduce my dear friend Yuka Ishitake, who will be selling products she's sourcing directly in India.
Yuka and I met eight ago, while I was working in Japan. She's the person who actually took over my job when the company transferred me to their branch in Singapore. Although we worked together only for a couple of hours 15 days before I left, we somehow connected immediately and never lost sight of each other over the years. It's very naturally that I felt to support her new business adventure now that I am back in Japan and have the time and space for it!
Yuka has been working in the luxury industry in Japan for 15 years (in marketing, communication and sales) before deciding to take some time off corporate world an start something on her own. an avid traveler, she's visited over 40 countries so far, and has been to India several times. She first visited India back in 2008 and fell in love with the vibrant country and its colorful handicraft scene.
By importing tastefully curated items in Japan, Yuka is hoping to support Indian craftsmen to preserve their knowledge and skills. She's careful to only buy from crafters who are able to work in a good environment and receive fair wages for their work.
