MELHO STORY

“Bringing happiness into your daily life with the best Asian pop culture products” 

What is Melho?
 
At MELHO, we are completely and irrevocably crazy about Asian pop culture. So much so that we decided to share this obsession with other crazy fans wherever they live in the world. And “Bringing happiness into your daily lives with the best Asian pop culture products” became the MELHO’s primary mission.
 
KOREA, JAPAN & POP-CULTURE are our main inspirations and we strive to create the best products that make your eyes shine. If we manage to make you smile when you look at our products, it means for us that we reached our mission.
T-shirts, socks, phone cases, stationery, accessories - every single object of our daily life is a good opportunity to create happiness and share our passion for Asian pop culture with you.
 
What makes Melho unique?
 
Our designs may be fun & colorful, with a vintage touch or completely traditional, MELHO explores all aspects of Asian pop culture to create its original designs. When we start thinking about new designs, our ideas have no limit.
 
We are constantly developing new products at our studio in Seoul, always with the same thought in mind: quality and originality. Additionally, we carefully select funny and cute products from brands that express our values of originality and quality. We guarantee the origin of all the products we sell on our website www.hellomelhostore.com and we guarantee them not to be fakes or copies.
 
Finally, MELHO FRIENDS is our very special project. We wanted to create our own characters to introduce to you in a funny way the Korean trends and lifestyle. Meet our MELHO FRIENDS characters and follow their adventures on our blog or our social media platforms @melhofriends.

At MELHO, we have a passion and we are so happy to share it with you!
