Hello Kitty, in a kimono, became a lucky cat! The pastel-colored kimono with red and ribbons give Kitty an elegant atmosphere. The floral patterns on the kimono are slightly different from each other depending on how they appear. Please enjoy it as the individuality of each doll.

Edo Kimekomi dolls are Japanese traditional dolls made to look as if they are dressed in costumes by embedding the ends of the fabric in grooves carved into the body.

They were originally created in Kyoto in the late 1740s, and with the subsequent development of Edo, doll makers moved from Kyoto and spread their techniques. Today, they are still made by hand in the traditional way, and are designated as a traditional craft by the national government. 

Kakinuma Ningyo is the manufacturer handling Edo Kimekomi Dolls founded in 1950. While pursuing a variety of original techniques, the studio has been eager to create innovative dolls that match the sense of beauty of the times.

The new Kimekomi Doll, which incorporates popular figures such as Lucky cat and Hello Kitty, is a traditional yet brand-new form, and is attracting renewed attention as a home decor item.

Exquisite

I have collected all 5 of these beautiful works of pure art! When buying myself one for fun, I did not expect it to be so amazing. I knew I had to collect them. I would also like to mention that each order came with a unique furoshiki. They are beyond lovely. I cannot comment about the Musubikiln customer service as did not need to contact them at all. But shipping is amazing!! I cannot believe how fast I got them coming from Japan!
