The idea of Gatofante was born while dreaming in a terrace on a summer morning. While looking at the garden below, we spotted several domestic cats. Different colors, different behaviors… but all of them HUGE! Were they just cats? Or cream stripped elephants? Or maybe both? Gatofantes (Spanish for Cat + Elephant) had just been cataloged as a new species running around our dreamland. And if such a thing was possible… what wasn’t?
We are two sisters who have always been into handcrafting objects as a form of art, letting our imagination fly in order to create something unique. But life is not always simple, and we ended up living more than 2000 km apart from each other. Through this website we can work together on creating things that inspire us. And even better, things that inspire you. We believe in making the world a better place by helping people smile. Cause in the end, it is the small things that matter.
You can find some of our creations on our Etsy shop, but we encourage you to ask us for custom versions of our products that just fit you. Gatofante targets everybody, but specially those who value unique creations made out of fun and love.
If you really want to make us smile back, we enjoy nothing better than seeing pictures of how you use our art. It’s really rewarding feeling we contributed a bit to other people’s happiness! Also, let us know what you think about our products and how we can improve. Contributions are much appreciated!
Welcome to our Dreamland, delivered to you in little pieces of our hearts. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
And as soon as they started dreaming, the Gatofante materialized in the room.
