Chita figurine Adopt a tiny chita of your own! Each little chita is an individual with a big personality. These little kitty cats light up a room with their cute little faces. *Your chita will be different than the one in the picture - each chita is unique, hand painted and hand sculpted* They will surely bring you joy! The Chita collection was named by one of my close girlfriends, Ziggy, she says: I saw a Natgeo a post of a baby cheetah and I thought of your new spotted ceramics — the name cheetah comes from the Hindu word “chita” which means ‘spotted one.’ Made with love by me, in Northern California, in my garage, just a few blocks from the beautiful and windy Pacific Ocean. All ceramics are food safe, dishwasher safe, plant safe, and oven safe. All handmade by Anne Gates in San Francisco, California in an eco-friendly green community studio and/or in the garage Each of the Chita figures is crafted with attention to detail and designed to make you smile. The hand painted and specially crafted design ensures a unique look for each figure, making it the perfect addition to any collection.
