Brand Watch: Artbox

Posted on May 1, 2011


Psst! Calling all UK fans of Korean/Hello Kitty/Just plain cute items- I’ll let you into a little ‘secret’ of where you can buy such things here on our shores! Rejoice at the fact that you won’t have to fight through language barriers or extortionate delivery costs just to buy these things! That secret is “Artbox,” a genuine, Korean company which I became familiar with during my 2010 holiday to Seoul, where this store could be found in just about every large mall you could think of! This is the real deal people 🙂

If you’re not someone who likes ‘cute’ or ‘girly’ things then you might want to X this window because this post will be full of that!

It’s no secret that I love all things Korean (I blog about it enough!), and after going to Seoul last year, that love grew tenfold; consequently “Artbox” is a store I have fond memories of and associate with those fun days in Seoul. I am so glad that they’ve opened stores on my home shores (I know of a store in London’s Covent Garden and Selfridges), that they have opened up this website for us UK’ers to conveniently shop and that they provide products that aren’t too inflated in price. They offer a whole range of stuff including, clothing, stationary, homewares, accessories etc.

I’ve ordered from them before and everything arrived within 3 working days, was well packed and the products of great quality. I’d also like to highly recommend that you sign up for their newsletter if you want to receive info on offers they occasionally have- like 3 for 2 or free delivery offers etc.

Anyway, hope you enjoy my personal picks of some eye-catching things from their website… KPop/K-Culture lovers especially take note of the last set of pictures- do you recognise some of these items? Yeah, they’ve probably been featured in some of the KPop/K-drama videos you’ve watched right? ^^ Click on the item names to go straight to their pages. *items at a sale price.
