Innovative "Maneki Neko" figurine created by a master doll maker
KAKINUMA Toko is a traditional craftsman who has been making Edo Kimekomi dolls for a long time and has won numerous awards for beautiful and original Hina dolls and festival dolls. He has a good reputation for purchasing carefully selected fabrics and making dolls with delicate expressions that give joy and excitement to the viewer.
To make a beckoning cat work, Swarovski for eyes and power stones for bells are used. The body is made of silk, printed cloth, leather, and other materials that have not been used in traditional doll making to create a new fantasy for the beckoning cat.
Hina doll craftsmen finish each one by hand, and it is a very special figurine. Since it is not a pottery, it is a product that you can enjoy for a long time without worrying about dropping it, cracking it, or damaging it.
