Explore what's new: four Graphic Tees and three Sun Hats!

It's perfect timing for back to school with our Apple Worm Tee. Be the eager worm with this super soft 100% cotton tee, cut, sewn, dyed, and printed all in Los Angeles, CA! Find yourself in our neon world with the Luminosi Tee. This design was originally created for two neon signs that were installed at our Little Tokyo store location, and we loved it so much we turned it into a real tee! For a very important reminder, we created the Stay Silly Tee to make sure you're not taking things too seriously. This design has a super subtle blue iridescent foil incorporated into the design, creating a fun shimmer! One of our personal favorites, the Hours Tee on a great light pink base, taps into the constant productivity we all strive for. Just remember, it's about quality, not quantity. Let's get to work! Shop all graphic tees!

Stay shaded this summer under our color block Sun Hats. Available in three different colors: Summertide, Jelly Roll, and Ranger! All are constructed with 100% cotton twill with an extra layer in the brim to provide extra sun protection and a stiffer brim to shape however you like. Our Sun Hat can be worn in three ways. The brim's edge can be worn, flipped up, or down depending on how much protection you're searching for. Pop the front up completely when you walk inside for a better view. This hat also features a paracord drawstring that you can attach around your neck for windy days. Not looking to use the cord? No problem! Just put it through the inside loops of the hat, and it will stay hidden. Shop all Sun Hats!

Patches are a great way to update and adorn your items! Mokuyobi began offering patches when we started as a way to adorn your bags. Today, our patch assortment has grown significantly! Explore our patch section for fun designs to use in so many ways. Zazz up your Mokuyobi or non-Mokuyobi items or patch holes on clothing and bags in a fun way.

Every patch order comes along with an instruction card for how to attach them. We recommend ironing them on only natural fibers like cotton and denim. If you wish to attach them to a synthetic fabric, we ask that you sew them on. You can sew them on with a machine or by hand. If you need help sewing on a patch, you can always take it to a local tailor shop. If you know that you want to sew on a new patch to a new Mokuyobi item, we offer a patch sewing service for free! Just let us know in the notes of your order what your desired placement is. Happy patching! We can't wait to see how you make it yours!
