With his grumpy face and classic stripes, Mono Cat is one of our most popular knitted creatures. So when we decided to work together with our Japanese partners, Tonkachi, to create a series of wooden kokeshi dolls, we just knew we’d have to include him.
Carefully handmade by talented craftspeople in Gunma Prefecture, Japan, kokeshi are traditional wooden dolls, characterised by their long bodies and large heads. Mono Cat’s stripes and features have been expertly painted by hand.
Traditionally given as a gift to newborn children or bought as souvenirs, kokeshi are popular with collectors and are often displayed as ornaments in their homes.
Please note: due to the handmade nature of our kokeshi dolls, each one is unique and the exact expression, size, color and grain may vary.
100% wood, made in Japan.
Dimensions: W45 x H90 x D45 mm
Avoid direct sunlight and hot, humid places, and avoid getting the kokeshi wet as this may cause stains.
