MUJI has based this wonderful idea on the concept of recycling. The POOL one piece dress in particular is really quite special as it works with several materials including wood, cloth and other products that cannot be sold directly. MUJI then works alongside other creatives to make new products like these wonderful dresses. At present, they are only available in America, Japan and Hong Kong.

These materials are kind to our precious parts and we can ensure that we feel the best we can right from our head to our toes!
Socks keep our feet warm and make sure our shoes don’t rub right? Wrong!

Creatives have designed a special pattern that not thinks about the angle of the foot but also the comfort you deserve. One hundred and twenty degree angle socks are now a thing of the past. MUJI have had to reinvent their whole knitting process to make them sit at the new, wait for it ninety degree angle! Check these pearlers out, they’re great!
