Hi friends!  Welcome to niconeco zakkaya.  This is Siming. Thank you for taking your time to read the story of my shop.

Beginning with our small shop on Etsy, niconeco zakkaya was founded in December 2015.  

"Zakka(雑貨)" is a Japanese word which refers to everything and anything that improves your home, life, and appearance.  To me, I see "Zakka" as those little things that can truly  jazz up your life, make memories and also inspire you.  "The details are not the details. They make the design," as Charles Eames once said.

Before I arrived in the US, I had been living in Tokyo, Osaka, and Kagoshima for the last 10 years. I missed a lot of things of Japan since I moved to New York City, especially Japanese zakka and stationery. I have always hoped that someday I would have the chance to introduce this wonderful part of Japan to people all over the world. I believe that's where my motivation and inspirations are from.

We offer a hand-picked selection of quality designed, thoughtfully hand-crafted items from Japan to the world. Our mission is to bring you beautiful tools that inspire creative minds.  

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions :-) Stay in touch!


Ps. On August 20th 2019, we opened our first retail store in East Village, New York. If you ever come to New York City, please come say hi :-)
