We take pride in curating a remarkable lineup of exhibitors representing the best of Japanese craftsmanship. Our carefully selected brands bring together a blend of timeless traditions and innovative designs. Discover a captivating collection of gifts, furniture, and home goods, showcasing the essence of Japanese artistry.
Based in New York, DECO BOKO is the first wholesale tradeshow in the US that focuses on Japanese products in the design / gift industry.
The organizers of DECO BOKO are native to Japan, and have been helping Japanese brands and manufacturers to give them opportunities to succeed in the US market.
Although we have been seeing high potential in well made / designed Japanese products, there are often gaps between the Japanese brands and the American buyers that makes it hard to do business.
DECO BOKO is a phrase commonly used in Japan which means “uneven”, and could also mean “filling in the gaps”.
The logo of DECO BOKO was created with New York based design studio, Studio Nework, inspired by this concept and the Japanese “Kanji” characters “凸凹”, which represents the word DECO BOKO.
We hope this show helps fill in the gaps between the Japanese brands and US buyers, for better transparency and fewer steps to achieve a business relationship for both parties.

Interested in Exhibiting at DECO BOKO?
We will be featuring artists who has close relationships with DECO BOKO, and has inspired our philosophy towards aesthetics and design.
Ceramic artist Showko was born into a long line of ceramists who have produced teaware at family-run studio Makuzuyaki in Kyoto, Japan for over 330 years. Interested in the materials of pottery vessels which have existed since time immemorial, Showko became a porcelain panel artist in 2005. She began creating porcelain panel paintings using a technique that involves layering and repeatedly firing glaze to achieve a glass-like effect. More recently she has been reexamining the meaning of ceramic as a material, using a process of breaking and reconstructing vessels of her own creation to produce pieces that express time and higher dimensions.
