Me & Arrow

Owner and designer of Me & Arrow, Natsuko Hagiwara, loves simply-designed, everyday items. She uses fine quality leathers, vintage and dead-stock fabrics to create unique and beautiful handmade accessories.

Natsuko, who was born in Japan, says that her work is inspired by the simplicity, colour and functionality of Japanese design. Although she has lived in America for over ten years, her style stems primarily from her Japanese roots, but is also influenced by the Southern Californian music scene and fashion from the 60s and 70s.

Having worked in the music industry for many years before turning her hand to design, Natsuko choose the name Me & Arrow from one of her favourite songs “Me & My Arrow” by Harry Nilsson.

Me & Arrow is based in Los Angeles and collaborates with local craftspeople. View the collection here.
