Some of you may have already read the word "decoden" in my shop or picked it up otherwise, but the meaning of this word is a mystery to many people. I would like to put some light in the darkness and explain you, what decoden really is.
Decoden (japanese デコ電) is the shorthand for "decoration denwa", it's thus composed of the English word "decoration" and the Japanese word "denwa" which means "phone".
In the meantime, Decoden is only a generic term for the individualization and personalization of all kind of objects. In addition to richly decorated phones or mobile phone cases, there are also decorated headphones, boxes and glasses; picture frames and fingernails which are called decoden today.
Meanwhile this crafting trend also reached other countries and there are many internet shops that offer ready-made items or materials for DIYs.
