Persimmonuma Doll 【招き猫】

Awarded as the work of "The Wonder 500" in Japan.

Lucky cats have been loved by Japanese and Orientals since ancient times. Not only are they cute, but they are also believed to bring good luck and fortune. The cat on the right hand attracts wealth, while the cat on the left attracts guests.

Kakinuma dolls use the traditional doll-making technique "kimekomi" (kimekomi), and use different types of high-grade fabrics to cover the beckoning cats made of paulownia. The fabrics used are all traditionally woven for making high-end kimonos, such as Yuzen, Nishijin, Glorious, Kinsha, etc. Contemporary materials such as leather and camouflage fabrics are also used.

In terms of traditional shapes, artists added Swarovski crystals to the eyes of some lucky cats, and added power stones to the bells, which not only increased its delicacy and elegance, but also catered to the contemporary thinking of "body, mind, and soul".
