You have a new reason to visit Toronto’s innovative new shipping container marketplace, Stackt Market – especially if your home (and life) could use a little update for fall. Fresh from the streets of Tokyo, Japanese sustainable home and lifestyle brand Puebco has arrived in Canada and will occupy real estate at Stackt for a two-month-long pop-up.
Trust us when we tell you that it’s “big in Japan” (for real).
A lifestyle brand with a solid backstory, Puebco offers home and lifestyle items created from recycled materials, all of which became perpetual talking points for the launch party on Wednesday, August 13, which attracted a slew of the city’s notables.
Founded by Tokyo-based designer Hirotaka Tanaka in 2007, Puebco’s sustainably made, industrial-inspired offerings include an eclectic assortment of homeware, travel essentials, apparel, pet accessories, apparel, camping gear and more – all at affordable price points. Before the idea of selling was added to the equation, Tanaka began creating instinctively, transforming found and recycled materials to produce retro and industrial-inspired lifestyle items.
Current highlights include things like tote bags, shopping begs, pet accessories, mugs, cutting boards and packable slippers, to name a few.
Available at specialty and boutique retailers across Asia and Europe, Puebco’s Toronto pop-up shop and Canadian ecommerce site marks the brand’s expansion into North America.
The Puebco pop-up (#1-112 – 28 Bathurst Street) is open Mondays to Wednesdays from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., Thursdays to Saturdays from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. In addition to the pop-up retail space, you can get your hands on the full catalogue of products via the brand’s e-commerce website.
