These maneki-neko or "beckoning cat" figures are extra-special in comparison to traditional maneki-neko. Besides bringing good luck and fortune to the owner, they are constructed of exquisite printed cloth applied with the traditional Japanese "kimekomi" technique to appear seamless, and feature Swarovski crystal eyes. The blue cat harnesses spiritual forces that aid in academic success and protection against traffic accidents. Each cat may vary, as patterned fabric placement will differ slightly from cat to cat.
