At Misc-store Amsterdam we are proud to be stocking carefully selected items from Kakimori's exquisitely crafted range of writing tools — to celebrate the joy of writing.
Kakimori's notebooks, inks, pens and letter papers are made through craftsmanship and imbued with the hope of treasured, long-lasting ownership — brought to life within your own space and time.
Their home is one of Tokyo’s old shitamachi (downtown) neighbourhoods. Craftsmanship remains well and truly alive, with small manufacturing workshops and factories lining the streets. Work and daily life exist in close proximity and there is a strong sense of community. By taking the design, production and retail of products into their own hands, Kakimori aims to reconnect with local manufacturing, revitalise declining crafts and artisans, and restore circularity for the next generation.

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions
& plants a tree for every order
Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like.
That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.
Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
Investing in projects focused on carbon avoidance is not the same as simply buying carbon offset certificates, that is why we have chosen to work with Ecologi.
