F/style Cat Mat
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.
Based in their hometown of Niigata Japan, F/style creates made-to-last pieces, that are thoughtfully made for the home, and for personal use, and the F/style Cat Mat is one of their most popular items.
The 20'' x 27'' mat is a sturdy indoor mat for the home, with a surface of low looped hemp, and a slightly raised three-dimensional silhouette of a cat made from high loop woven wool.
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.
This 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 or animal lover, the mat is meant to give any space a happy appearance wherever it is placed.
F/style recommends only hand wash and spot cleaning for care and absolutely no dry cleaning or machine wash due to its wool material.
