Presented by Topdrawer
Fuzzy slippers, bento boxes, Japanese handkerchiefs, and more—Topdrawer is your one-stop shop for functional and beautiful products to accentuate daily life.

Topdrawer combines the quality and craftsmanship of our grandparents’ generation with a drive for independence, function, and stylish sustainability. It all results in a collection of tools, curated from around the world, that help you do your best work wherever you are.

By providing products that invite people to tap into their creativity wherever they go, Topdrawer instills a sense of comfort and beauty into everyday actions: packing lunch to go, using a handkerchief as a fashion accessory, or even coming home after a long day and putting on your fuzziest Japanese house shoes. The tools you use in everyday life deserve thought and care, and Topdrawer has a wonderfully curated collection of products that do just that. See some of our favorites below and take 15% off your first order:

Topdrawer Bristol Journal (Medium)
In an age when so many of our words are captured and transmitted digitally, it’s important now, more than ever, to keep a practice of putting pen to paper.

Kaweco Sketch Up Pencil

Native Union Night Cable
Native Union’s Night Cable is ten feet long, meaning a greater range of mobility around a power outlet. No more dropped cords or hovering near the outlet. This product comes with Native Union’s trademark braided, tangle-free cord, prevents your cord from falling off the desk, bed, or couch.
