Our very own Lisa and her dear friend Holly got to go to the Kentucky Derby this year, and we’re a little jealous. Not only did they get to witness the “greatest two minutes in sports,” but they got to take our new custom-designed, officially licensed Kentucky Derby products along for the road trip.

We had so much fun living through them as we followed their #catstudioroadtrip on Instagram. We think they both looked fabulous in their extravagant hats (and we think the mint juleps look extra tasty in those catstudio glasses.

We are so excited about the opportunity to create this custom design for the Kentucky Derby. The products are available to purchase at local retailers + our website and are in limited supply. Whether you were able to celebrate in the stands at Louisville, or were watching it at home in Texas, we hope you had a wonderful Derby Weekend. Happy Trails!

    Who does the embroidery on your pillows? Is any of the embroidery machine done?

      Hi Charlotte! We’re so sorry for the delay in response! All our Geography Pillows (Kentucky Derby included) are actually HAND embroidered by skilled artisans in India. It’s pretty incredible – it takes about 40 hours to embroider 1. Our Collegiate Collection pillows are machine embroidered by super high-tech embroidery machines in order to accurately depict the finer details of university logos, etc. 🙂
