This ¾” thick National Archives is hand screen printed on the front and back. It is part of a four-piece series of buildings called Washington D.C. 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 National Archives are where the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are stored. They are sealed in cases made of bronze and glass that are filled with helium and screened from harmful light rays. They are protected by an intricate system and can be lowered into a bombproof, fireproof, shockproof safe at a moment's notice.
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.
