The rustic and charming dog is printed on cotton using a woodblock and stuffed with rice husks. The rice husks give the perfect amount of volume and firmness to bring the expertly shaped and printed creature to life.
Wearing a vest decorated with creeping smartweed and red flower, the dog is one of the animals in the Chinese zodiac. On the bottom is a sticker with the maker's name in Japanese. It makes a nice addition to any animal lover's collection.
