Cats, Embroidery, Wire

Inspiration “7 catZ collection”

Cats are in general nonchalant and carrying some sort of enviable demeanor or irreverence toward the rest of the world. As they have fascinated people for a long time, they were also the nuisance reducing tool. Now, kitten videos have invaded the web, showing a new attitude towards animals in general. The catZ collection draws on cultures that have depicted cats while providing a contemporary touch to each of them. It is often said that cats have seven lives… and the catZ collection has 7 catZ.


Japan has always had a strong influence on Zako, after time spent there snowboarding in her first life. The whole way everything and everyone seems to abide by, somehow very civilized. Yet, amongst the beauty of things, kinky or odd things can be found in their culture. Bondage is one of them. Traditionally, the Japanese cat, the Maneki Neko, is the “good fortune” cat. The Zapanese appears all at once really, bonded like in a yoga session, and luck provoking, trust it.
