These beautiful cat baskets are handwoven from rice straw in Japan. The Neko Chigura has traditionally been used to protect babies from the heat and cold in regions of Japan with extreme temperatures, but – unsurpringly – the local cats have always been quick to take up residence in these cosy dens.
Neko Chiguras are very tricky to get hold of outside Japan, but they’re available from the fantastic Belgian online store PurrFect Design for €499.00 (around £403.00 at current exchange rates); there’s also an option to add a custom-made cushion, available in a range of colours, for an additional €60.00 (£48.00). Another one for the ‘when I win the lottery’ list!
Dimensions: H40cm x W40cm x D40cm.
