About MONO JAPAN Japanese Design & Crafts Fair 2022

MONO JAPAN Fair came back in September 2022, at a new location LOODS6 in Amsterdam.
Once again, we have introduced carefully curated selection of modern Japanese artisanal products and makers to the Dutch and European audiences.

Despite the difficult travel situation, Japanese exhibitors have traveled from Japan to join us in the Netherlands. We also had some local Dutch and Japanese brands and makers joining us for the event. Each will be exhibiting and selling their unique products in person. These three days is a chance to experience MONO JAPAN's motto "Buy things directly from the makers". You have a chance to meet Japanese craft makers and learn about their unique manufacturing techniques. You see the “relationship between objects and ourselves” from a different perspective than we typically experience in the Netherlands.
