Studio D' Artisan Sign in Their Office in Osaka

Hello Mister,

It is been a long time since my last Japan journal (the last one is about Samurai jeans right?)

Today I would like to share the journal to Studio D’ Artisan in Osaka, with my friend Alon.

Studio D’ Artisan staff cannot speak English well, hopefully I met this helpful guy from the hostel where I stayed in Osaka, He was an English teacher for 4 years in Kobe, so he speaks Japanese fluently.

A day with Mr. Alon

That day was very hot and humid, fortunately Alon is coming with us to SDA store in the center of the town, but we have a difficult to find the store, because i forgot to print the map to get to the shop,but after spending a time on our self-written map,finally we found the SDA store.

SDA Osaka

In that small sized beautiful store, I was amazed for the interior and the collection, a lot of collection that SDA offers in the store.

Alon helped us to introduce ourselves as the guy from Indonesia, and then our contact Nishijima-san, introduced us to Studio D’ Artisan history.

And Nishijima-san explained us about the first lot of Studio D’ Artisan, the details and the fabric of their first lot.

After that Nishijima-san take us to SDA office not far from the store. And there we have an interview about SDA history and products.

with Nishijima-san and Alon

I asked everything that I want to know about SDA and I have almost all the information I need,even though there is some questions that Nishijima-san cannot answer (because he is in charge in web and publishing)

But i have enough information for this time and I planned to go back to meet them once again to get more information from them.

Alon helped me with the interview

with the store manager, Nogami-san (different from the Samurai boss)
