A store 100% dedicated to the finest Japanese brands…
Bows & Arrows is a concept store selling a selection of contemporary Japanese lifestyle brands:

Limited edition items exclusively made for Bows&Arrows, only available at the store
To make our selection, we travel to Japan several times per year and draw on the knowledge of our Japanese curator friends. We also get inspiration from our connections among designers, craftsmen, artists, galleries and workshops or small factories.
The store only sells:
Products made by skilled craftsmen
Contemporary and good-design products
Products that everyone can enjoy and use in their daily life
The store receives new items from Japan every Thursday: always changing, always bringing new surprises and/or inviting new artists and craftsmen for special events.
Bows&Arrows will also organise a few events per month where customers can experience Japanese culture such as Ikebana flower arrangement, tea ceremony or Japanese gift wrapping, screenings or music nights...
Bows&Arrows is the retail branch of the « Japan- Best » distribution company based in Paris, dealing with the international wholesale distribution of more than 10 Japanese brands.
