I've spent the last half hour drooling over everything on Shinzi Katoh's site. If you're not familiar with the Japanese artist, go to the site now! His illustrations, designs and artworks adorn just about anything you can imagine, from fabric for crafting, to water bottles (so much nicer than the available Sigg designs), to kitchenware, totes, books and much more. The company says the items number in the thousands which is mind boggling, but what I love about his designs is that there is so much variety and style, but each and every item is still identifiable as Shinzi Katoh.
You may be able to spot his wares at select locations like MoMA San Francisco, or if you are lucky, perhaps a ZAKKA store near you might carry his goods. There are a few online places like Arthur's Circus that feature a few things. I think it's possible to order from the site, but the shipping, I imagine, would be monstrous.
