I’ve often seen bloggers using the expression “zakka” and wondered about the meaning. What´s zakka?
Zakka (from the Japanese ‘zak-ka’ or ‘many things’) is a fashion and design phenomenon that has spread from Japan throughout Asia. The term refers to everything and anything that improves your home, life and outlook … Zakka has also been described as “the art of seeing the savvy in the ordinary and mundane”. … Cute is not enough. To qualify as a zakka, a product must be attractive, sensitive, laden with subtexts.
I´ve just made this bucket bag out of an ancient piece of heavy homespun found at a lumber room at Samsø a couple of years ago. The lining is a faded red tablecloth.
That´s recycling for sure – but I wonder if it qualifies as zakka too?
