OUR DESIGN PIECE OF THE MONTH – THE LUCKY CAT

Each colour has a different meaning.

Everyone knows the Japanese lucky cat figurine, otherwise known as Maneki-neko. Whether as a shiny gold pendant with red collar and lucky coin or as a classic ceramic ornament, they greet us with a perpetual wave from many a shop window in Thailand, Japan, China and Taiwan. But these unassuming little kitties have now taken on something of a cult status. Their magical powers have captivated people all over the world, making them a firm feature in the homes of cat lovers across the globe.

Egyptian cat goddesses – what the colours mean.

The lucky cat in glossy black is a gentle mother cat that symbolises fertility. It not only brings luck, but also purifies its surroundings, warding off evil.

In rich violet, the lucky cat brings a sense of calm and faith into every home. As the 15th colour to join range, it is now one of the most popular in the collection.

The lucky cat in glossy gold is a true icon. It is the guardian of good fortune and always helps its owner to make the right decision.

Discover even more colours and adopt your very own Maneki-neko – they’re all lucky charms! And by the way, they’re even suitable for cat allergy sufferers!

Donkey products – it’s in our DNA.

Although Donkey Products originally sprouted as an offshoot of the Donkey design studio, it has long since been standing on its own feet – or should we say paws? In any case, we think the cult design products are pretty cool! Take a look round our new online shop and let us inspire you.
