Elevele is a small company in Vilnius, Lithuania who crafts wonderfully creative, cozy cat caves that keep the resident felines (small dogs too) feeling calm, safe and warm anywhere in or around the house. Klaidas and Elena, the couple behind the company, test out all of their highly rated merino wool wares on their willing tabby cat, who appears in many of the product pictures. These wonderful caves can be purchase through the Elevele Etsy Shop
I personally have always loved the nature, which is my greatest inspiration and plays a big role in my life. This affection has made a huge influence on my works, for instance, my first cat cave looked similar to a stone. The entire collection includes interpretations of a flower, a leaf and a hornet’s nest. I experiment with different fibers and materials to create new textures and maintain caves’ shape unchanged. It is also worth mentioning that all caves are handmade using only wool, natural olive soap and water. I have great a family which is all very supportive. My husband has studied architecture and also adores cats. That’s why he is so interested and helpful with my work. We live surrounded by the nature in our house on the fringe of Vilnius, where I also have my studio. Again, our beloved kitty Rainis is always there to try new items, play with wool or watch me felting. He has a life of a prince surrounded by various cat beds and toys. We are very grateful that you choose our products and it is always a pleasure to get a feedback from our happy customers and their kitties.
