Pitch:
I made the rabbit myself. I saw an all light-brown floor rug in the shape of a rabbit in London in 2001 and absolutely loved it but it was too expensive, I think it was done by Droog Design. Later, I got so obsessed with the shape that I searched the internet until I found a large enough picture to trace in illustrator. (More below)


Before Droog, it was made in the 20's in Germany (forgot the designer, but there were other animals as well) So then I just had that shape as an eps somewhere on my computer for like 2 years. Then I went to Colombia and got a cowhide for $60 which was just perfect for my rabbit shape. I made 3 and gave the other 2 as gifts. It is velcroed to the wall in my apartment.

Cheers,
Boris
