Awesome Packaging: Muji Shrink-wrapped T-shirt Cubes

Muji Shrink Wrapped T-shirt


At the weekend the love-of-my-life and I went to the gargantuan Trafford Centre near Manchester to shop (I bought pants!), exchange her broken iPhone (Apple were having none of it, but they’ve sent one now, huzzah!), eat burritos, watch Scott Pilgrim (post about the tees in that coming up soon on HYA), and generally have a good time (we did).

Whilst we were wandering about in Selfridges we happened upon the Muji section. I really wish that Muji still had their own stores in the UK, but I guess it wasn’t to be, so we’ll have to make do with an in-store store. Amongst all the other well-designed items were these little cubes of cotton, which when opened would reveal themselves to be an extremely wrinkled t-shirt. I’ve got no idea of the quality of the t-shirt, but I really liked the idea of tee-cubes, and the scarf-cubes they also sold, and thought you guys might enjoy seeing it too.

I also found ‘Ass Blaster’ hot sauce in Selfridges, but we probably shouldn’t dwell on that for too long.

They can also be purchased from the Muji online store in the UK (and presumably elsewhere) for £9.95.

    If it’s anything like any of the vacuum-packed tshirts that I have been given, it will suck. They’re just too thin.

    I like how the picture doesn’t even try to deny that the shirt will be permanently wrinkled.

    These are great to drop in a pocket if you’re out anywhere overnight, and the pre-creased look is right “on trend” at the moment.

    By the way, Muji do still have their own stores in the UK, but they have scaled back from what it was a few years ago.

    Ahh yes, 1 shop in the North and 6 in London, typical!
