If the Japanese terms ‘wabi-sabi’ and ‘mono no aware’ mean anything to you, then you’ll probably already know Supermama. The store specialises in porcelain homeware – by both local and Japanese craftsmen – whose beauty lies in its flaws. In other words, the wabi-sabi mantra of: ‘imperfect, incomplete and impermanent’. Think asymmetrical bowls, dimpled cups, and painstakingly hand-painted plates.
Besides porcelain, Supermama deals in wooden, MUJI-harking homeware and tableware, accessories such as watches, and other designer-y souvenirs. Your best bet’s to pop in to find out what’s in stock – because most items are only available in limited quantities.
