Kumi is a very sensible kitten; she knows that the present economy is volatile so she is tightening the belt voluntarily, so that she can hopefully sail through the big financial tidal currents. The idea of designing Kumi derives from the Chinese phrase ‘tightening one’s belt’, it has a similar meaning to that of ‘tightening the purse strings’, except that we are tightening the belt because with lesser money to spend, we may cut back on spending on food, hence the looser pants. Kumi is approximately 6.5cm (2.56”) tall.
