Trends in the Field: Japanese Masking Tape

Wow! Just when you thought you had the coolest Sticky Tape on offer, in comes Japanese Masking Tape!

Rather than try and do this stuff justice with words, we'll just post some pics from the official website!

The site itself is really cool, has great pics and info and tells the story behind the most versatile and heartwarming item any fan of craft or style could ever want. The only downside is that we don't know how to find it locally!! If anyone has any ideas, please let us know!


  1. You do have some prettyu cool masking tape, this stuff is gorgeous though, I'm loving patterned and coloured masking tape at the moment

  2. Really, really cool masking tape, except there isn't anywhere in Australia (that i'm aware of) where we can get it! :( the easiest way is probably from some people on or else perhaps shopping directly on a japanese store that sells them? My friend is going to Japan next year and I will ask her to pick some up for me!

  3. I'd love some of this, but as others have pointed out, you can't get it outside of Japan. I know many Aussies and Americans who are dying to get their hands on this stuff, including me!

  4. I got the snowflakey design (around the glass) from a girl who runs a stall at Glebe Markets in Sydney. She also has an Etsy and is going back to Japan to buy more tape.
    It was $3 a roll!
    Her next stall is Oct 3.
    There are a few on her Etsy too:

  5. I found some on the Sunshine Coast in Qld at Evolve at Peregian Beach and Pulp has them too

  6. I am in love with these tapes. I can use them everywhere and on anything! I got mine from a store called "littlehappythings1" on Etsy. They are new, but their price is the best so far as I know and the owner is very sweet to deal with. If anyone is interested, you can check here:
    I have a boxful of tapes but I still can't get enough of them!

  7. Love love love:

  8. I don't think you can quite call it "Japanese" masking tape if it's just masking tape with a design on it. It might be quite a thing for me to say, but there might just be some new stationary shops in Sydney's main city area that stock these.
