Fat Quarterly Issue 18 – Zakka

Zakka means “various things” in Japanese and refers as much to an attitude to life as the thing itself. Zakka is practical and functional as well as fun and pretty. Zakka can be described as Cute, retro or kitsch but really it is just something that makes you feel you have to have it!

This issue is packed with unique objects which all more than fill the criteria for Zakka. Not only are they cute but they are practical and fun. Remember to share photos of your Projects in our Flickr Group or by using the instagram #fatquarterly hashtag.
