Hizen Yoshida-yaki beckoning cat with a long history

Hizen Yoshida-yaki is a traditional craft of Saga Prefecture with a very long history of over 400 years. In 2019, KataKoto was born as a brand that creates pottery with a new sense of freedom and creativity while making full use of these techniques.

Many traditional porcelain products have an air of stateliness, but this beckoning cat has a very light and modern impression. The simplicity of the porcelain, with no superfluous painting, is appealing.

The design is completely different from other brands of porcelain beckoning cats because it is made from an original mold. The charming eyes are so cute that you can't help but look at it when you have it on hand.

Simplicity! Design that fits in with both Japanese and Western styles

The beckoning cat is glossy no matter where you cut it, and there is not a single scratch when you touch it as if you were stroking it with your hand. The secret of its beauty is that its face, hand, ears, and tail are so smooth despite its complex curves, which are different from those of tableware.

Above all, the rounded back and the pinned ears are as cute as those of a real cat, which is also the charm of this beckoning cat.

The simplicity of the design, in which only the eyes are painted, also gives a sophisticated impression. The design makes full use of the simple, one-color design, which fits in well with both Western and Japanese spaces. You can enjoy coordinating it with various other items you place with it.

Hidden back slit! Also works as a piggy bank!

An elastic ribbon is tied around the neck of the manekineko like a collar. The ribbon has a design role of tightening the simple-colored Manekineko, but in fact, there is a slit under the ribbon.

From there, money can be inserted and used as a piggy bank. The money put in can be taken out freely by removing the rubber lid at the bottom. The slit is firm and large enough to hold banknotes if folded.

It can be used as a piggy bank to store money, and furthermore, it has the connotation of "inviting money luck," which explains the naming of the cat as a "navel beckoning cat.
