Little Bit About Us
HIGHTIDE is a brand established in Fukuoka, Japan in 1994, specializing in office supplies and stationery. Products we sell at HIGHTIDE have retrospect and nostalgic feels of Europe and America, but each design and functionality are upgraded to suit the modern lifestyle. We also enjoy collaborating with various cross-genre artists and fashion brands. In addition to our uniquely crafted products, HIGHTIDE STORE DTLA offers items that fit naturally into your daily lifestyles, produced by Japanese brands.
We also host events and exhibitions at our store to introduce crafts by artists mainly from Japan. The concept of HIGHTIDE STORE DTLA is to reproduce a local stationery store that always existed near a school, a place familiar to anyone who grew up in Japan. In these small stores, shelves were crammed with notebooks, pencils, erasers, pen cases, cheap sweets and toys. For students with little pocket money, these stores stood out as a place to hang out with friends and network.
