Today we bring special news...
Years go by more and more quickly, don't they? December has arrived bringing cold air and frost our town. Countdown to Christmas and New Year has started and the streets and shops are decorated and illuminated.

Are you looking for lovely gifts for this Christmas but everything you find is generic, impersonal and massive? We are very excited to present you what we have been working for the last months.

We would like to offer you an original and beautiful gift to give thanks and wish Happy New Year to you and your loved ones: our 2018 calendar.
We present our dog Miso on the cover. We adopted him from an animal shelter 5 years ago and since then he has become another member of our family. Did you know that Japanese years are represented by the 12 animals of the zodiac and 2018 is the year of dog? We wanted to take this opportunity and dedicate this to him for his affection & being always good companion.

The year of the dog represents loyalty, tenderness, happiness and diligence.
According to the horoscope, people born in the year of dog tend to be kind, friendly, intelligent, noble and faithful.

This is a multicultural calendar with a history and short tradition behind. We prepare the calendar in our rural house located at la Garrotxa (Catalonia) It's our small, craft-made, seasonal and joyful project that this year hits his 4th edition. (Thank you to all who support this project buying and using them every year.) We are happy to be able to keep going on and slowly growing with this project :)
Our rustic calendar is alined with these our values. We fuse our hearts: Japan and Catalonia. From Japan we take the symbolism of the calendars and use a traditional and handcrafted printing technique called Bingata. While all the calendar illustrations are inspired by our rural life and Catalonia's traditions.

● Yoko has specially designed 13 seasonal illustrations to tell you a story or a poem. We hope you will enjoy each one month to month as you turn the pages.
● It is printed on recycled paper and uses ecological ink.
● The size of opened calendar is A4, ideal size for writing down your events and easy to find a suitable place to hang at your home.
Only Sundays are red coloured so that you can personalize it with your holidays and anniversaries.
● It's mainly visual but includes some texts translated into Catalan, English and Japanese.
