F/style Cat Mat

Regular price $288 Unit price  per 

Description:
Made in Niigata Japan by a woman-led design company called F/Style, this low looped hemp mat has a slightly raised three-dimensional silhouette of a cat made from high loop woven wool.   This strictly indoor-only cat mat can be displayed in a welcoming entryway or placed as a room accent where you see fit. As a charming addition to the home for any cat lover, this mat gives any space a happy appearance wherever it's placed.

Variation:
Due to the handmade nature of this item, there may be slight variation.

History:
Flooring has always been of particular importance in Japan for many hundreds of years, and tatami floors have long been the standard.  When wooden floors became a part of Japanese life, Japanese craftsmen started working on carpet alternatives that would feel both comfortable and consistent after many years.  As a result, the development of hemp weaving came to the forefront of Japanese flooring craft.  

Emi Igarashi and Wakana Hoshino, both born in Niigata Japan, co-founded the brand 'F/style' in 2001.  By focusing on the art of making things, or "monozukuri" in Japanese, F/style's mission is to re-popularize ancient Japanese craft by applying them to new and contemporary designs that fit within a wide-range of modern aesthetics. 

Measurement:
20'' x 27'' 

Materials:
Hemp (brown woven mat), Wool (hand-tuffed cat)

Care Instruction:
This is an indoor only cat mat because of the materials.  F/style recommends only hand wash and spot cleaning for care and absolutely no dry cleaning or machine wash due to its wool material.
