Akira Yoshimura is the founder of Shy Shadow, a design brand that creates custom cup sleeves. His latest collection is an homage to his Japanese culture and features five designs that vary in color and theme.

These bright cup sleeves are sold in a five-piece set and are priced at an affordable, $12 rate. In addition to their fun design, these drink accessories are functional and perfect for themed parties or in-office use, when cups are likely to get mixed up with those belonging to co-workers.

Akira Yoshimura first gained praise after winning Destination NYC's design contest and has since created countless coffee sleeves inspired by both his Japanese heritage and nature. Other products by the designer include his Safari and Aqua collections which are available in New York's MOMA gallery shop.
