In a few sentences, tell us what your startup is all about!
Katt. is a curated online concept store featuring feline inspired items, that also functions as a unique platform for designers and illustrators. We introduce our customers to exclusive collaborations from some of the most relevant independent artists and creatives from all over the world.
Creating small pieces of art, we allow people to express themselves. Pins quickly turn an ordinary piece of fabric into something special. Something unique. Creating small pieces of art, we allow people to express themselves.
But Katt. isn’t just about beautiful statement pieces. The traditional idea of pins, t-shirt and prints is to show support. And so do we. Showcasing the work of independent makers and supporting the artists behind them. All our products have one thing in common and it’s not only cats. Our collections have a face. Like the artists behind them. Like our customers. Like us.

Why did you choose this particular idea and concept to build your start-up on?
As an alternative to perusing broad one-stop webshops, many people are looking to discover one-of-a-kind destinations that offer a highly curated selection of goods that will suit their specific interest.
An increasing amount of people don’t really look to big fashion brands and corporations to tell them what to wear anymore. They want to decide for themselves. They seek personalization and individuality in their style. Katt. is part of this rebellion.
