Packaged in a unique, custom designed bag (featuring the amazing talent of Jerrod Landon Porter), Omoiyari represents the best of the human spirit, as we all possess the unique ability to have compassion with one another. We eagerly await Kishi Bashi's film next year, which chronicles his personal journey through the history of Japanese American incarceration during World War II - creating music around locations associated with this time in our history.
As part of this very special release, and in time for the holidays, we are also offering custom ceramic mugs created by Atlanta-based artist Charlotte Smith. We are lucky to collaborate with her, and she has created three styles for us: one vessel inspired by our beloved Jittery Joe's orange, one with hand drawn line work and another cup decorated with a floral image. These cups are lovingly crafted by hand, so they are unique works of art. This is a very limited run and all cups are slightly different in size and shape. These cups are being offered in combination with Omoiyari, and we believe they represent one of the most unique gifts available in this holiday season.
