6 Things About Zakka that’s Making Your Life Better

When Disney opens a Zakka House, you know zakka is for everyone! The Japanese word for miscellaneous home and living goods means different things to different people, from handcrafted linens to cute knick-knacks and more, but the one thing they have in common is that zakka are objects with meanings. Whether it’s a mug, a planter or a notebook, zakka is worth our love for a few good reasons!


1. Treating things with care.

Zakka is about emotional connections with objects. Minimalists in particular know that a little TLC goes a long way.


2. Getting to know yourself.

Handmade Wallets from Buwu

Arranging, displaying and refining your collection is like a journey of self-discovery.


3. Expressing your way of living.

Organic Linen from Pint!

There’s a reason we go for natural zakka, eco or even weird Village Vanguard zakka. It’s a way to express yourself and your values!


4. Creating a community.

Connecting with the makers of zakka and people who like the same style make us feel like we belong. (Have you met Tokyo’s Makers’ Base?)


5. Finding joy in the ordinary.

A well-made spatula or apron might turn dreaded cooking into a delightful event!


6. Feeling beautiful inside and out.

The Last Song from Tadashi Koizumi

Beauty may seem skin deep, but it actually comes from commitment and hard work! (Meet the Makers and they'll share their stories.)


Zakka are objects that represent our way of living. Some are functional, some not so tangible, and they help us embrace all those parts in life!
