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) Though I set up this shop in 2010 I was too busy to stock it until recently, so 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.

I love this little guy. Sometimes, because of his eyes, I catch myself thinking he's real.

I ordered this because I loved the looks of it. But now that I have it, I found that it really works as the description says it does! The soft weight of it over my eyes or forehead feels good, and the fragrance is oh-so-nice. It also blocks light very well. Communication with the artist was wonderful; I asked for an eye color change, and she graciously did it for me. And shipping was FAST. I love everything about it.

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 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 Stores, 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
