Wednesday the 9th March, Rilakkuma and his friends Karilakkuma e Kiiroitori came visiting Paris directly from Japan. Gemma and I, who we are amongst his greater fans, met him at BonTon, one of our favourite shops in Paris.
There were a lot of Kawaii surprises, of which Gemma promptly benefited, such as the Rilakkuma's nail-gaze (created in collaboration with nailmatic-kids), balloons, temporary tattoos and colouring draws. At BonTon, there was also a new collection of cloths, bags and accessories inspired to amazing world of this little lazy and glutton bear.
For souvenir of this cute day, I carved a rubber stamp on Rilakkuma and his friends, with a little Parisian touch. Au revoir les amis!

I still remember the amazing taste of White Rabbit peanut candies by Shanghai Guan Sheng Yuan Food, which I tried out a couple of years ago in Shanghai! They are very typical of this town, all people that live there eat this candy...
And since I am delighted to announce that I will be back in Shanghai at the end of the month, I have made a couple of creations inspired to peanuts, such as Monsieur Cacahuète (Mr. Peanut) hand carved rubber stamp, and his young assistant, Le Petit Cacahuète felt brooch. And of course, I also enjoyed to make an hand carved rubber stamps inspired to the White Rabbit Nugats, one of millions of reasons to visit Shanghai! I hope you like it...
