About the Author
umatan came up with the idea of making hats out of cat hair when she saw a pile of brushed fur from one of her cats that resembled a hat. Now, she designs the headgear and her husband, rojiman, photographs the creations at home in Tokyo on their three feline models Nya, Maru, and Mugi. The results are showcased on rojiman’s popular Instagram page as well as in British museums, Reuters, the Japan Times, and on a line of Japanese products including playing cards, washi tape, calendars, stickers, and postcards.
