Hello fabulous kitties and hoomans

Mancat Monday was previously scheduled with Humphrey, but I Pandora Von Der Plume Feline Fashionista Extraordinaire hijacked the blog instead as today I am back with my Fashion with Feline series sharing all the latest news, gossip and trends from the world of Kitty Couture and Apparel.

This is your go-to place for all emerging fashion trends for 2020, and I'll be interviewing exclusive brands and exceptional kitties who share a love of fashion, design and dressing up too.

This week I have the utmost purrleasure introducing Eric from Eric's Empawrium which is actually only a few miles away, and even in the same county as us; Robin Hood country aka Nottingham U.K., OMC can mew believe it!  And he's a kitty with a furry generous heart as mew'll see in his exclusive intermew.

Eric is also a very talented and handsome tuxedo kitty who designs the cutest bandana's mew've ever seen, plus he model's all his own designs too, how epic is Eric?  EPICALLY EPIC!

Plus Eric has an Etsy store, so if mew're in the market for a fab new bandana, he's the go-to guy to get yours. Click the link below to check out the latest creations:

Exclusive Intermew with The Designer

Eric dahling, do tell us about how mew came up with the idea for your exclusive Empawrium?

We wanted to make a little store for cats and help causes along the way by having fun. Each year we chose cat charities to share their work and donate a percentage and encourage donation drives. I love my Bandanas so I wanted to share in this by making them for others.

How long has your shop been open? 

We are VERY new and just this Christmas we opened.

Where do mew get your inspiration from?

Mum has a creative brain and will very often be inspired by colours and themes which could pop up anywhere... movies, adverts and so much more. 

How many designs do mew sell?

We sell over 25 designs at present but I'm working my paws on another 20 for this year.

Do mew have a favourite design or fabric?

My favourite is 'meowgical' mum says it brings out my sparkly purrsonality!

Do mew ship wurldwide?

We sure do! We are expanding each day with countries so most will be available mid-year so we can keep our shipping costs compawtetive!

How easy is it for mew to source fabrics?

Very easy, mum goes to events and has a couple of lovely suppliers. We are even designing our very own this year to print! Designed by mum herself.

Is there anything else mew'd like to share with our readers?

We are a little business with a great big heart! We love the pawsome cat community and hope we can help many unfortunate paws this year!

Thank mew very much for intermewing me
Eric xx

  16. Fabulous interview, Pandora. Eric is so cool!

    Bandanas on cats are the best. Our Angel Graphite used to love wearing his. :)

  17. We hope we win the Koala bandanna. We love the cat's fashion sense.
    It's great what you're doing.
    Hope we win.

  18. Fun interview! My oldest cat could use a bandana ... but our youngest might steal from her. She loves being fashionable. :-)

  19. We love all the bandannas but love the Koala best. We said earlier we wanted a cat what we meant to say is cat bandanna but we love the Koala just as much.
    We think it's great what you're doing.
    We hope we win.
