Story Behind Name Bunko Junko
Bunko Junko embodies the Japanese meaning of 'art decoration creation' by creating beautiful wearable art from discarded materials. Transforming this wastefulness into Green Resources.
The name "Bunko Junko" was derived from the initials of the brand's founder, Bhavini Parikh(B), and her name(J). They combined the two initials to create "Bunko Junko." Bunko Junko is a brand that was born from a simple evening walk with a daughter. When the founder Bhavini was looking for a name for her brand, she didn't find anything that clicked with her. That's when her daughter suggested a name that was inspired by her own name, Capt. Jill. She suggested the name "Junko" from the initial "J," At first, Bhavini was hesitant about using the name because she thought that no one would love to buy from a brand called "Junko".
Bhavini added her own initial "B" to create "Bunko Junko".
However, as she and her daughter looked into the meaning of "Bunko," they discovered that it means "art decoration creation" in Japanese & Junko From Junk . This perfectly embodied what the brand was all about, which is taking discarded materials and turning them into something beautiful and functional.
