Cats often find their way into Hayao Miyazaki's films and the 1995 musical and romantic drama Whisper of the Heart is no exception: there are two cats that play an important role in the film and one of them, the stray called Moon or Muta that travels on the train the main character Shizuku Tsukishima uses, is also the main feature of the Whisper of the Heart Chenille Embroidery Pouch. Or at least one of them, because this nice little accessory has different illustrations on either side: on the other is Shizuku and Seiji Amasawa, the film's male lead, both riding on Seiji's bicycle.
The embroidery technique is chenille, which is particularly suitable for bringing anime characters to life and making them stand out from the fabric. Despite being quite eye-catching, though, the Whisper of the Heart Chenille Embroidery Pouch is also discreet (just 120 x 170 x 60 mm or 4.7 x 6.6 x 2.3"), so you can carry it in your pocket, handbag, or backpack. It has an inside pocket for cards, is made of cotton and polyester, and only weighs 33 g (1.1 oz), making it ideal for everyday use.
