Products we sell at HIGHTIDE have retrospect and nostalgic feels of Europe and America, but each design and functionality are upgraded to suit the modern lifestyle. We also enjoy collaborating with various cross-genre artists and fashion brands in the production.
In addition to our uniquely crafted products, HIGHTIDE STORE DTLA offers items that fit naturally into your daily lifestyles, produced by Japanese brands. We would also host events and exhibitions at our store to introduce crafts by artists mainly from Japan.
The concept of HIGHTIDE STORE DTLA is to reproduce a local stationery store that always existed near a school, a place familiar to anyone who grew up in Japan. In these small stores, shelves were crammed with notebooks, pencils, erasers, pen cases, cheap sweets and toys. For students with little pocket money, these stores stood as a place to hang out with friends and network.
Upon our grand opening in July, we are delighted to announce that we are mounting an exhibition by a Japanese illustrator Noritake at our store.
