Da An District

1. A Kind of Cafe

Mon marché, a sort of cafe, a kind of cafe…, there have been several names attempting to describe this multi-purpose creative space. A Kind of Cafe in Taipei’s Da’An District has indeed become the friendly kitchen and mixed media creative studio that Uulin and Pearl imagined it to be.

2. TRAN Apparels

3. Yarnball Illustrations

For years, illustrators Chia-Chen and Ping-Hsien have been touching people’s hearts with their art, detailing shared memories of life in Taiwan. "We often lose connections to ourselves as life pushes us forward. It happened to us, and that’s why we began creating art that’s relatively simple with the time we can scrape together."

6. Omake Urban Nomad Apparel & Accessories

Continue the adventure in Dadaocheng to Omake, a world market full of cultural characters. Owners Bio and Mulan bring back “souvenirs” from around the world to share with friends and visitors—a notion of the original Omake founded by Tanaka Mikami in Niigata, Japan. Here you can find a carpet from India, a beaded charm from Afghanistan, or a wind chime from Chiang Mai.

Zhongshan District

7. Xuxuwear

Xuxuwear is named after a verse in Shijing (The Classic of Poetry), the oldest existing collection of Chinese poetry. “Xuxu” is the sound of people laboring towards shared goals, very much the process of making clothes. But in the shop, what you’ll feel most is the beautiful outcome of a comfortable space with thoughtful designs and a gentle, positive outlook to life.

In the shop, you can get up close and personal with the Chinese and western herbs used in original Grassphere recipes for wellness teas and dried fruit infusions.
