【Tear Drop Happy】
The “Tear Drop Happy” book, written and illustrated by Brian Yeh and Natsuko Kodama, was created to spread mental health awareness to audiences that aren’t typically exposed to the topic. From references to Eckhart Tolle’s Power of Now, Kristin Neff’s studies of self-compassion, to visual and lyrical cues from Kids See Ghosts, Tear Drop Happy is a simplified and informed product that contains the life experiences of both Brian and Natsuko. All they hope is that this book can expose others to some of the tools that helped them through their own mental health issues – even if just a little.
Japanklyn was founded in 2020 in Brooklyn, NY.
It all started in a small apartment with our love and compassion for Japan and Brooklyn and a passion for fashion, specifically hat.
The pride, respect, and patriotism for Japan and the culture, along with love for our community, culture, and lifestyle of Brooklyn, all fused like a chemical reaction.
“Lism”, stands for “Less is more”, is a jewelry brand by Chihiro Takeshita, based in NY from Tokyo, Japan. She is inspired by Native American jewelry, nature and traditional Asian culture. She is also a Yoga teacher and therapist. She met Yoga in 2015 and Yoga changed her life. The most important concept she got is “Less is more” which is “Taru wo Shiru (足るを知る)” in Japanese. She wants everyone to know that you can let things go and make more spaces to get something new through her jewelry and activity.
I make accessories using Dorset buttons. These are made with threads which came from Dorset, England, from the 17th to 19th centuries. I also combine Dorset buttons with shiny Turkish strings, as well as Japanese hand embroidery threads that are specifically used for a kimono that is unique to the Kyoto region.
