Announcement   Welcome to THE VELVET CAT !

Velvety flexible fabric felines can take every pose of a real cat

The Velvet Cats are charming decor for home or office, for those who love animals and fine fabrics. My velvet cats can take many real cat poses. Made with top-notch craftsmanship, using luxurious interesting fabrics, these will be keepsakes for a lifetime.
The Velvet Cat has been successfully wholesaling for many years to fine craft galleries and shops (under the name Wild Design) These little cats are just recently going online to sell through Etsy. Though you can't touch them through the screen, they are very heavy, soft, squishy and posable.

Honey Bear liked the kitty. The eyes are the best so full of soul, they are. Thanks, Amy

Can't wait to give this gorgeous kitten to a friend who always dresses in these colors-- she'll love it (him/her!)!

My litter of four kittens is totally adorable and I can't wait to "re-home" them with friends (except for the cutest, who is staying with me!)

My daughter absolutely adores her Kitty Cat! She takes it everywhere and can't sleep without it. Jacqueline was very helpful and assisted with a custom cat. Highly recommended!

About

the cats are sleeping...but will wake up soon to visit you....

I studied at Ontario College of Art & Design, and worked as a library artist in Toronto , becoming Dept.Head of Graphic Arts and Display for the central library and 20 branches. After some years of 9-5 I quit and started my own studio,

On Saturdays I welcomed the neighborhood kids to my studio for free art lessons, which led to my making stuffed animal "rewards " for them, for learning respectful care of the brushes and equipment. Local shops and galleries liked these designs as well, and with added help sewing , became a nation-wide artisan business. I named it"The Frog and Box Toy Company" selling 15 styles of my animal designs wholesale to handmade shops. This name changed to Wild Design and as the years went on. Along with other employees, I hired 6 Vietnamese "Boat People" ~ a great experience to be part of world history.

I have done commissioned design/make for Viewmaster, Le Chateau and Macmillan Publishing. A fun contract was to make and install huge animal figures in a permanent Noah's Ark for Toronto Public Libraries.

Many years later, I now work alone, and specialize in cat designs. I live in a quiet small town along the World Heritage Rideau Canal, and do all my own work from design to making to shipping and accounts.
I wholesale regularly to 10 or so fine craft galleries/shops under the name "Wild Design" ~ this keeps me extremely busy, so busy that I am just now finally stocking my Etsy shop ! Please visit my cats at
