Our Story

A story of love, friendship, smiles

and colorful whiskers

How does a curious, nonchalant, adventurous cat make hundreds of cities around the world its home? It all starts with a strong friendship.

 

When 3yo Emilio’s family was to relocate, he wanted to give his best friend the most special gift.  So he told his mom “She’s my kitty… make her a kitty.”

 

That’s when Chiquimiau’s co-founder, Mayra Azanza, came up with the long-legged, big-eyed, cuddly, silly looking cat that she submitted for Emilio’s approval.  He loved it immediately and hugging it tightly he said “it’s Chiquimiau!” (“Chiqui” means tiny and “Miau” is the sound the cats make) 

Chiquimiau quickly gained popular approval and orders started to come. Ever since that winter afternoon, hundreds of Chiquimiaus have been designed for happy owners in the US, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Singapore and more!

Chiquimiau’s adventures are many, and after a lot of research and the creativity of co-founder Hagit Segal we decided to create five collections that represent some of the many interests of our audience: 

  • ChiquiChef: exploring our connection with food.

  • ChiquiScience: scientific minds that question everything

  • SuperMiau: never-ending energetic and the brave at heart

  • ChiquiGaia:  nature lovers who connect with the planet.

  • ChiquiPilot: travel lovers exploring cultures and geography.

 

Chiquimiau has been to renowned museums and has had its picture taken in the Mexican mountains, in galleries in Toronto, the very top of the Kilimanjaro, the coolest technology headquarters in Silicon Valley and in the skyscrapers and deserts in Los Angeles, but most importantly, it has touched hundreds of hearts around the world, reminding children and their families that playing is essential for a healthy life.  

In a busy world that can sometimes be overwhelming for everybody, there’s a cat that can take you by the hand and show you the beauty in everyday life. 

Love your world, your food, your planet. Understand the science behind it and discover new places.  That is the best cattitude.

Chiquimiau…
