Rinrin Yamano is a Japanese manga artist and illustrator who creates comics and artwork with cats as the central theme. Because of her irresistibly cute art style, over the years she’s collaborated on a number of cat-themed merchandise like coin purses and plushies.
The latest addition to her body of work are sets of adorable cat pillowcases and bath towels being sold through Japanese online retailer Felissimo’s “Neko-bu (猫部)” category of goods. The name Neko-bu translates as “cat club”, and true to its name, all of the items are either for cat lovers or for actual cats.
Rinrin Yamano's work often portrays cats playfully and full of personality, and her art style is clearly reflected in the items' designs. Both the pillowcases and bath towels come in four different pastel colors.
They can be purchased within Japan and also abroad. However, they will be delivered on a monthly basis with Felissimo choosing the order they get delivered. Each of the pillowcases and bath towels are priced at 2,200 yen and 2,300 yen respectively, with a small percentage of the sale going to the company's fundraising for cat and dog protection activities in Japan.
