"The Old Dominion," "The Birthplace of Presidents," - those are both names for Virginia, but there is so much more to this beautiful state. It's packed with history that goes back to before the original 13 colonies were all formed, back to Roanoke and Virginia Dare. The historical significance of Virginia to the United States is beyond merely important. From Jamestown to Colonial Williamsburg to The House of Burgesses to Richmond becoming the capital of the Confederacy, the history of the US runs through the veins of Virginians in the same way as blood runs through the human body. The Cat Studio Embroidered State Pillow - Virginia is part of the Cat Studio Geography Collection and a great way to pay tribute to many of the happenings, people and places that crowd the historical annals of this state that has been so vital to the founding and preservation of our country. It is 19" square of 100% cotton, decorated with hand embroidery in 8 bright and lively colors. The down-like, poly filled insert can be easily removed for laundering. Toss one on the sofa or grab one for a nap. When you see the embroidery you will be reminded of this state's past. The style is that of the 1950s Souvenir Shop items. And if pillows aren't your idea of perfection, how about some of Cat Studios' other creations? They offer plates, mugs, glasses and dishtowels too, and all are available to honor your favorite state, city, country, region, resort or national park. If you don't see just what you're looking for, keep in mind that new pieces are always being designed. Check back often and you're sure find just what you're looking for.
