TURN-OF-THE-CENTURY ANTIQUE FRENCH LINEN / MEL, TOKYO.

As a not-so-well-known destination on the vintage route in Tokyo, Mel Antique deserves every bit of recognition for its exquisite collection of French cotton and linen, ranging from 1830 to 1950. Owner Takatoshi Tanaka is no understatement to the term ’passionate’, and his spirit is rooted in France where he spends long digging trips around the countryside - looking for these incredible pieces from old barn houses and warehouses.
