Born of the principle “Because cats love Kawara, right?”, Sansyu Noyasu Co., Ltd., a 100-year-old Sansyu kawara manufacturer established in 1913, created a cat house called “Kawara Neko,” crafted from the same traditional Sansyu tile-making techniques that have been in use since the Edo period.
It was inspired by the sight of a cat sleeping comfortably on top of kawara.
“Kawara Neko” combines traditional techniques with innovative ideas to provide a comfortable space for cats around the world.

Born from the skilled handiwork of Oni-kawara artisans源自於鬼瓦工匠的 精巧手藝

“Kawara Neko” are handcrafted by artisans who work on each Oni-kawara (decorative ridge-end roof tile) individually, one at a time. Each tile is a unique masterpiece of exacting handwork. 「瓦貓」出自於細心雕刻一塊塊鬼瓦的工匠手中。精巧手藝,造就獨一無二的逸品。
