This ¾” thick Eli's Harness Shop is hand screen printed on the front and back. It is part of a four-piece series of buildings called Ohio Amish Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her nineth year of business. This series was introduced in 1991 and retired January 1998.
The lifestyle the Amish choose is one without modern conveniences, such as elecrticity or cars, relying on kerosene lamps for lighting and horse and buggy for transportation. Given the roll of the horses, a harness and blacksmith shop are vital to the Amish community.
Look for our trademark black cat, Casper, on every Cat’s Meow. Handcrafted in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.
There are a limited number of this piece available, which is reflected in the price. With your purchase of this building, Faline will donate 10% to Amani Ya Juu, a fair-trade sewing and training program for marginalized women throughout Africa.
