Gray Intarsia Socks - COOL HUNTING

Blue Blue Japan pays homage to their home country with these socks featuring the rising sun. Woven into the ankle of these reinforced, cotton-blend items, a red circle references the nation's flag: the Hinomaru. As they're finished off with tapered cuffs, these socks won't lose their shape or slide down when worn.

Zakuro Cast Iron Teapot - COOL HUNTING

The Iwachu workshop has been hand-crafting cast iron since 1902, and their team of artisans also does an incredible job updating its collections to include more contemporary pieces—all while remaining true to their traditional processes. The Morioka-based makers turned a typical cast iron teapot into a sculptural work with distinct personality and ultra-functional features. Plus, the deep blue hue, because of the texture of the material, appears speckled in the right light.

Justkids + Camille Walala’s Colorful Gas Station - COOL HUNTING

The corner of Grand Ave and 11th St in Fort Smith, Arkansas has been transformed by women-led global creative house Justkids and French artist Camille Walala. Named Walala Pump & Go, the '50s-era gas station is now a bright, bold and playful piece of public art. The colorful patterns that now cover the structure were inspired by the artist's "travels, the Memphis movement, optical art masters and the Southern Ndebele tribe women." Plenty of locals helped out with the project, including artist Nate Meyers. Curator for Justkids, Charlotte Dutoit says, "After five years of curating diverse visual projects in Fort Smith, I learned that a big part of good place-making is creating community and a sense of re-discovery of the beauty that is there, in the city, all along, and Camille’s work does just that."

Storytelling Can Usher Us Into an Eco-Friendly Future - COOL HUNTING

Swedish journalist and chief storyteller for Sweden’s Viable Cities Program, Per Grankvist believes that specialized storytelling (which varies from city to city) will be what actually convinces large population groups to make more eco-friendly changes to their lifestyles. Rather than advertising a future in which cars fly and eating meat is illegal, Grankvist wants to make the conversation more human and centered on minute actions that can make a difference. He insists that while we must make fundamental changes to avoid the damning results of climate change, the future does't need to be a wild evolution of today. “You can use approaches such as [portraying] the story of someone’s day—something pretty normal, like taking your bike to kindergarten, dropping your kids off, and then jumping on an electric bus to work,” he tells CityLab. “When you look closer, however, there’s a whole bunch of sustainable, climate-neutral solutions going on. That tells the inhabitants of Malmö that the future isn’t entirely frightening. We won’t have flying cars. It will be fairly similar, even though we have to make some fundamental changes.” Read more there.

My First Skateboard Book - COOL HUNTING

Written by pro skater Karl Watson and illustrated by Henry Jones, the aptly titled My First Skateboard was written to inspire kids to get active—on skateboards and within the skating community. The positive tale follows Jonas through his journey: from his desire for a skateboard to shredding the San Francisco streets, and then meeting people from all over the world through the sport. Explicitly saying that skating is for everybody, the book carries an undeniable air of encouragement for little ones.

An Ever-Growing Database of Good News - COOL HUNTING

Meant to "move our attention beyond dramatic news headlines to the slow developments and quiet trends that go unseen, uncelebrated," Beautiful News (by Information Is Beautiful) stores infographics and research results that deviate from the grim headlines found more commonly. Updated daily, the graphics detail positive developments in the fight against climate change, news of rising global literacy, falling mortality rates—even the announcement of new types of chocolate—and more. Each graphic comes accompanied by cited sources, a blurb for context, and options to share or embed the graphic elsewhere. Though incredibly informative and well-presented, Beautiful News may be best used as respite from the typical news cycle.

How Like-Free Instagram Will Look - COOL HUNTING

Instagram will begin to hide "like" counts on posts this week for certain users in the US—an expansion of testing that's already begun in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan and New Zealand. As Instagram has made clear, likes aren't completely gone; they will be visible to users on their own photos and videos, just not to their followers. Business Insider has provided a screenshot from an Australian account that's already transitioned to the test stage. Notably, it's not that different than what we currently see. Head to Business Insider to learn more.

Outdoor Kimono HAORI - COOL HUNTING

Designed in Japan, this kimono comes features a traditional, hip-length silhouette, but is extra durable and warm thanks to its 100% polyester POLARTEC® 300 make-up. The kimono—because of the technology at play in the fabric—regulates the interior temperature to suit the wearer's current needs, thus preventing overheating or sudden chills. Altogether it's a stylish and functional garment that can be worn in the city, or even on a camping trip.
