About Us

Cotton Sheep is a family-run select shop specializing in Japanese apparel since 2004, located in the Hayes Valley district of San Francisco.

We are proud to be the original importers of iconic Japanese artists and brands such as Kapital, Goro Takahashi, Wingrock by Riki, Kaoru Jewelry, FITH for kids, and others. Our clothing selection continues to be sold in-store only. Please check our instagram for clothing updates:


In 2020, we have launched 'Hands of Japan', our official web-shop focusing on handcrafted lifestyle goods. 

A celebration of 'teshigoto' (handwork), and the beauty of slow-made. 

In an increasingly fast-paced and digital world, we feel that it is more important than ever to focus on intentionally crafted objects built to last many lifetimes. To invest in objects that will never be landfill, and our grandkids will be happy to inherit.

We are honored to partner with many artisan families across Japan who share our goals of preserving traditional crafts and the quality of slow-made.
