About kuchiku

Sales 124
On Etsy since 2013

Hi. You are welcome.

This is kuchiku: an eco-conscious boutique of adventures by SUPER MEGA ACTION PLUS.

It’s blinkin’ lovely that you stopped by :)


We’re jamie and debs and our day job is making movies. However...

Since the before beginning of SUPER MEGA ACTION PLUS, back in 2007, we often talked about how super sweet it would be to have our own little shop, inspired by the inventive independent boutiques of Kingly Court, off Carnaby Street, or Camden Stables, back in the early 2000s; we had many fun-times discovering their goodies.

We imagined our shop as a tiny studio/gallery, where we work at creating creations out the back (we might have to take turns to be out front) and as soon as each item is complete we can offer our curious creativities to other human beings and hope they love it in equal amounts to the amount of love we put into making it.

There would always be super fresh sounds on the stereo and friendly people would like to come by, say hello and enjoy our creations, like a gallery or library or record shop. Sometimes a friendly someone might take something home with them, or choose a gift for someone else because it's always a beautiful thing to share and make more connections with human beings.


And now HERE WE ARE! On a boutique-of-adventure adventure!


Everything you discover inside kuchiku is made with love and care and fun and mischief and a sense of adventure and curiosity and possibility.

We enjoy wandering out into the world, bringing home a spirit of adventure and the wonder of wild nature. Reframing windows to the world. Returning from a Welsh beach to look out on Shanghai. Painting up a glimpsed idea, only ever imagined, into something tangible to be gazed upon and explored.

Please put your favourite music on and have a browse around this little space we've made.


We hope you love kuchiku by SUPER MEGA ACTION PLUS via Etsy. We're muchos excited.



We choose to care for people and planet, give with gusto and delight in making people smile :)

For every purchase you make on kuchiku, a tree will be planted somewhere on the planet. Let’s grow a forest!




We’ve got more coming! Let’s dance!



Love from debs n’ f*ckin jamies xx

Frequently asked questions
What does FAQ stand for?

FAQ stands for the goodness in the hearts of all humans and free crisps for all. Literally translated, it means ‘A knowledge shared, is another human’s less of a problem’.

Are you eco-friendly?

We do our very best to be as eco-friendly as we know how to be…
+ We are Powered by 100% renewable energy

What’s a Giclée?

Now you’re asking.

Giclée printing provides the highest quality and archival properties of any digital printing.

The word Giclée (pronounced ‘Jee-Klay’ with a soft J), comes from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray”.

Our true Giclée prints deliver unrivalled colour accuracy; superior black & whites, exceptional colour gamut and sublimely smooth gradient transitions.

Giclée printers use a higher quality of fade-resistant, archival, pigment-based inks. Your Giclée Print will be printed using best-in-class printers and 12-colour pigment inks. When applied to high quality archival substrates, e.g. the Hahnemühle cotton-based, Rag paper, this results in an unbeatable archival lifespan of up to 200 years.

Is your paper eco-friendly?

YES FRIEND!

We use beautiful Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm paper for all our prints. It’s our favourite paper, because it looks awesome AND is 100% responsibly sourced.

This is a supreme quality fine art paper manufactured from clear spring water and high-quality fibrous raw material, acid free, chlorine-free, lignin free, lightfast and extremely age resistant (archival; more than 100 years of fun). Ingredients: 100% Cotton

With its characteristic and wonderfully soft feel, the surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. The premium matte coating produces outstanding prints with brilliant colours, deep blacks, striking contrasts and excellent reproduction of detail.

Is your printing and shipping eco-friendly?

YES FRIEND!

Carbon neutral printing and shipping

Our print partners are the UK’s first Fine Art & Photo printing service that is completely carbon neutral. Carbon emissions are offset via The Gold Standard.

Localised production partners allows us to reduce carbon emissions.

Is your sustainable materials eco-friendly?

YES FRIEND!

The materials used to produce your order have been carefully selected to reduce impact on the environment and avoid plastic pollution whilst still ensuring your orders get to you in perfect condition.

Responsibly sourced Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm paper
Recyclable packaging envelopes
Recyclable cardboard stiffeners
Paper tape made from 100% recycled fibres
Biodegradable bubble wrap

Recyclable bio-polyethylene frame protection

How are prints packaged?

A skilled technician wearing fetching white gloves will carefully wrap your print in protective, eco-friendly packaging, using biodegradable bubble wrap and tissue paper.

All prints up to 8 x 12 inches will be packaged flat.

All prints over 8 x 12 inches will be placed into a robust reusable and recyclable cardboard tube, secured and sealed at both ends.

UK and EU customers will not be charged customs and import taxes. Other countries may have charges that are out of our control and you will need to check your local customs situation regarding this matter.

Trees? Wha? Why?

Planting trees is essential for our planet.

Approximately 17% of climate change is caused by our loss of trees, an impact on global greenhouse gas emissions even greater than the entire transport sector.

We cannot fight climate change without solving deforestation.

With every purchase from kuchiku, you can celebrate yourself and the fact that a tree, carefully selected to provide appropriate benefits for it’s location, will be planted on Earth – as a direct result of your discerning taste in arts and canny choices.
