8tote went to merilab in Sendai to sell totebags and show “encourage tote” – messages from Gifu (where we held the traveling shop on March) customers on the white bag!
Sendai is one of the biggest city at north Japan. The city were damaged by the earthquake.
It was a good time with Sendai customers! We were really happy to see their smiles :)

Romis meets 8tote


From December 10th until 24th an event called “Romis meets 8tote” is being held at Taipei’s Specialty Store Romis. We arrived in Taipei on the 9th and completed our preparations while meeting with Romis’ staff.



An opening party was held starting on the evening of the 10th at Tote Cafe, which is another location that is managed by Romis. We had an amazing time together with Taiwan fans!



On the 12th, 8tote bags were moved into the Romis store. The event will continue until the 24th.

To all Romis staff in Taiwan and Romis fans: we really had a lot of fun!

We would like to go to various other countries and cities from now on. If there is a store where you would like to see an 8tote sales event, please let us know! We hope that next time, we can meet in your country and in your neighborhood!
