Sales of minne and Creema will end
We have decided to discontinue sales on the handmade sites minne and Creema, which have been a great help to us over the past 10 years since the founding of Philosophy.
The sale will run until October 31, 2023, after which it will be closed once delivery is completed.
With the opening of our new online shop, we will be concentrating our sales on this site from now on.
Creema was the first service I registered when I launched Philosophy.
When I looked back at my order history, the first order was for a pink business card holder from ☝️ that was sold on Creema on September 15, 2013! It was hand sewn and cost 6,300 yen. Even looking at it now, it looks surprisingly beautiful lol
As a side note, at Christmas of that year I decided to quit my corporate job and become independent. Now that I think about it, I'm a completely terrible person😇
This pink leather is no longer available, but the business card holder is still available in the same form and is a long-selling starter.
In addition, Hobonichi Techo covers and system notebooks are long-selling items that have lasted for 10 years.
At that time, before the handmade boom started, I think there were not many craftsmen making brightly colored leather accessories.
Creema has received over 1,000 reviews, so I feel a bit disappointed.
However, I feel like it's about time for handmade sites to sell non-handmade items.
Without Creema and minne, we wouldn't have the philosophy we have today, so thank you very much for your help.
From now on, we will focus on running our own online shop.
We also plan to continue posting information on Instagram and our new YouTube channel, so please continue to support us .
