The World of Catstudio
Welcome to the World of Catstudio, where Hand-Embroidery, Maps, and a whole lot of love and joy await you. You'll discover over 300 of your favorite geographical locales and universities, with many more in the works.
At the heart of catstudio are its founders: Carmel and Terrell Swan, creators of Swan Magic embroidered t-shirts. The "CAT" in catstudio comes from the first letters of their names—C and T. Their love for hand-craftsmanship, passion for geography, and sense of adventure and fun shine through in everything they create.
As you explore this world, each piece of art is lovingly drawn by hand on paper. Spending countless hours researching, sketching, chatting with locals, and bringing the art to life with as many as 30 colors—all with one big goal in mind: illuminating YOUR special place with love, joy, and an insider's perspective.
Imagine the geography pillows, embroidered by HAND on organic cotton, taking over 40 hours to embroider just one. Each pillow is even signed by the artisan who embroidered it. The rich detail of their licensed pillows is embroidered on super-specialized embroidery machines.
And don't forget the glasses and thermal bottles—art applied by hand with vibrant organic inks. The glasses are dishwasher safe, perfect for everyday living or entertaining. The thermal bottles are innovatively designed to keep your beverages hot or cold for all your adventures.
Picture hand-loomed cotton dish towels, hand silkscreened in 12 colors, complete with a hand-stitched border. Each towel is wrapped ready to gift in an eco-friendly reusable pouch.
The zip pouches are artfully woven, creating a unique texture and perfect for stashing all your essentials.
At Catstudio, everyone has a story, a home, a happy place. The team loves nothing more than hearing your Catstudio stories—collections of glasses that celebrate all the places you've been, or pillows passed down from generation to generation. Bringing a smile or a memory to one's heart through the artwork they create is the reason they do what they do.
And for their dedication, Catstudio received the Americasmart ICON award in 2014, recognizing them as the creator of the Geography niche in the home and gift industry. You can watch the video to learn more about their award-winning designs!
