The Wabi-Sabi Cat is an original creation by Erynn Chiemi Tanimoto at the age of 13. Since then, the series has expanded to 9 designs, with more to come!
Life is Wabi-Sabi
Even the Wabi-Sabi Cat knows that life’s not purr-fect. Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese view of life that finds beauty in things that are simple, humble, unrefined, and impermanent. Embrace this concept, and find joy in life’s imperfections.
Be on the lookout for new Wabi-Sabi Cat designs in the near future!
Sakura, The Sakura or Cherry Blossom represents the beginning of spring. It is a symbol of good fortune, love, affection, and happiness. Cherry blossoms are also an enduring metaphor for the fleeting nature of life. The short blooming season inevitably ends with the beautiful flowers falling to the ground.

Ichigo Ichie, This Japanese phrase literally means “each moment, only once”, or cherish each moment and encounter, for it will never happen again. It reminds us how delicate and fragile life is, for every meeting with someone is a chance occurrence never again to be repeated.
