I opened my email inbox yesterday and was delighted to learn that RESOBOX is again home to the amigurumi invasion! And it’s a very cute invasion at that—amigurumi are colorful crocheted or knitted stuffed animals, a modern art form in Japan. RESOBOX is hosting the “World Amigurumi Exhibition vol. 2: A Crocheted Culture Celebration!” and it is definitely worth your time.

Here’s a photo from the exhibition from last year:
