This ¾” thick Schumacher Mill is hand screen printed on the front and back. It is part of a four-piece series of buildings called Market Street Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her seventh year of business. This series was introduced in 1989 and retired January 1995.
The beautiful Schumacher Mill was home to one of the greatest oatmeal-producing mills in the city of Akron, Ohio until 1971, when the Quaker Oats Company left town. In 1987 the Mills were renovated and turned into a shopping center and dining complex.
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.
