Kira Kira means shining, sparkling, glimmering, and twinkling in Japanese.
Our goal is to help you shine from within through our one-of-a-kind, hand-made, and nature-aligned goods.

kira kira life was created by Akari who believes that we truly shine from within when we are connected to our inner beauty - our essence.

It is Akari's sincere desire that you are being you - fully embracing and celebrating your appearance, the path you've chosen to walk, and even scars you may carry inwardly and outwardly.

It is Akari's hope that the handmade, one-of-a-kind products will remind you of how unique and precious you already are, and that this will prompt you to radiate joy from within.
