F/style Cat Mat
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.
Due to the handmade nature of this item, there may be slight variation.
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.
