Della Slowik

Designer Della Slowik returned to the U.S. enraptured with Japanese culture after a 2002 trip to the island. Motivated to translate her newfound inspiration into gifts, Slowik began crafting ornaments shaped like fresh sushi rolls. "I started making sushi ornaments as Christmas presents [for] the family. I found [a distributor] and had instant success with it, so I asked myself: 'What else could I turn into sushi?'" says Slowik.

Slowik soon expanded her line into everyday objects with a sense of humor, like plush slippers shaped like vibrant sushi rolls and oversized fortune-cookies. "I haven't stopped making Japanese items since!" collection

        I bought this for my cousin's kid, and it arrived in broken packaging, the the construction of the product looked a little flimsy. It was still cute, but overall her least favorite gift of the bunch.

                        As an American living in Japan, these have become my go to present for baby showers, first birthdays, and the like. These booties are darling, creatively packaged, and above all, FUN! I will soon buy my third and fourth pairs as gifts, and all the parents who received them loved them. Silly, irreverent,unique,and FUN, FUN, FUN! Buy these now if you want to be the talk of the baby shower circuit! :)

                              I bought these for my best friend's baby. The baby isn't born yet so I'm not sure how they fit, but the mother-to-be loved them. Her husband is Japanese and thought they were great. The packaging was perfect and they shoes are cute. I recommend these :)

                              Service and delivery comments:

                              After not receiving my order in 10 days I called. Uncommon Goods had a tracking number for USPS but then thought that my order had gone out UPS. Tracking in UPS showed that it had gone out UPS but then delivered to the nearest post officed.
                              The customer service rep I spoke to said that he would ship out a new order that day to arrive in two days. Six days later I called again after not having recieved the booties. They said there had been a "glitch" and my order had NOT been re-sent. They sent another order that day. I received it, though not with the gift box I paid extra for.
                              The original order finally showed up with the gift box heavily damaged. I am still working on getting reimbursed for the damaged and unuable gift box.
                              Very disappointing. I got my neice an alternate gift for Christmas since Uncommon Goods could not get me the booties in time.

                                    I bought this as a first b-day gift for my girlfriend's little girl. They look so adorable, and the sushi packaging makes a cool thing cooler. I payed extra for the gift option, and it was well worth it. Now it's ready to go, and it looks beautiful. The box is navy blue, with a light green bow, and a card. I don't know about sizing or comfort since they are a gift, but quality looks good from what I can see. I know my girlfriend and her baby will love these, very original.

                                      A gift to sushi loving parents of a newborn baby boy. They absolutely loved it. They are too big for a newborn (but knew that) but that didn't stop them from taking an immediate foot dive. Should get maximum use. Just plain fun.
