Slightly retro, highly beautiful, our 'Makkuro - Lucky Cat' Japanese print is part of Uki Uki's 'Happy Japan' set of artworks. Bursting with joy, they're vibrantly coloured and designed to make you smile.


Makkuro means 'pitch black' and as well as being a popular name for Japanese cats, is also referenced as 'Makkuro-Kurosuke', soot sprites in My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away so we kind of took inspiraton from these cute guys.


Cats are considered a sign of good luck. In Japan, cats are a universally beloved part of culture and are believed to bring good fortune with them wherever they go and you'll find many artistic interpretations of these elegant creatures.


Why not pair it with the playful Kitaro Lucky Cat print to keep each other company? 


The print fits standard IKEA frames and are printed in the UK.
