About TakaraCollectables

Sales 204
On Etsy since 2017

Freedom is treasure.

There is nothing more important than freedom to human kinds. Nowadays, we are facing a increasingly difficult world to live in. With all kind of inventions, but we as human seem to be left behind. So this is my personal battle with this trend and also a way to liberate myself from working for nothing.

We have been throwing things away for decades, fast fashion has taken a lot of freedom from us such as the place they were made and materials they were made of. In the old days, you can't really throw things away because there will be no easy replacement. Here we go, this is our little vintage and antique shop.
--------------------------------------------------------------

If you like handmade accessories, we have another shop : Takaracrafts.etsy.com . Takara Crafts is a Sheffield based Bespoke Geisha Inspired Accessories brand. We create modernised accessories with traditional Japanese textile craft "tsumami zaiku" which is generally known as "kanzashi" in the western world. Our range of accessories include brooches, earrings, headpieces, hairpins and rings.
