Kitanya Design Factory is based in Tokyo, Japan, and makes cell phone charm straps, pins, and other goods that are based on Japanese rope bondage - Kinbaku.
Each charm is handmade by a single individual, Hirotsugu Itsuji. They are all hand painted, hand tied, and dipped in a clear coat for extra durability. Each charm is signed on the back side with the initials of the artist "H" and "I" overlapping each other (see photo and inset).
Even though they are very cute, these charms are NOT toys. They are not meant for children. It is not recommended to pull on the strings (either tying the figure up or the cell phone strap part). They contain small parts and are a choking hazard.
Because each charm is entirely handmade you should expect there to be some minor differences from piece to piece. If you prefer carbon copy items that are churned out by machines please look elsewhere.
