compliments from around the web:

"Combining vintage finds and original artwork, this designer-photographer and painter-musician duo fill their Etsy shop with a slew of unique goodies, from critter portraits to a killer selection of retro paraphernalia. But, it is with their folksy paper-mâché animal masks—whose details and shapes are exquisuitly executed—that Zelda English and Rodrigo Neto strike a chord."


"Captain Cat has got to be my favourite vintage shop on etsy. Zelda English and Rodrigo Neto "are an ever-changing explosion of creative endeavors, collectively and as individuals". Here's a couple of beautiful pictures taken by them of their wonderful, hand made beast masks. The shop is full of such an eclectic mix of vintage treasures, I shall be posting more from the shop again soon."

What People Are Saying About Captain Cat Collective

A Few Nice Things Being Said About The Art Of Captain Cat collective

" Without a doubt, my favorite shop this week has been Captain Cat. No matter what I search for, I seem to find results from this shop, and am always amazed and inspired by what I find. Each piece individually looks like part of a dream, and every piece in the shop portrays a life full of wonder when put together."

"We all respond to beautiful images, ones that conjure a mood and a beautiful, aspirational life. And also images that express the perspective of the designer or store owner and that we, as customers, identify with, be they romantic, eccentric, preppy, earthy or luxurious. As a blogger, photography is one of the first things I look at when I visit a site. In fact, I've often been disappointed when I found a new label I loved and went to their website, hoping to share it, only to find lacklustre photography that failed to capture that spark I saw in person.
So, I think you'll immediately see why I was blown away by Captain Cat. This Etsy store is more than a vintage clothes store."

"If I were one to hyperventilate, that's what I would be doing right now. And all because of the Etsy shop Captain Cat Collective. I have nothing but vast quantities of love for many many shops on Etsy, but this one takes the cake. The selection is perfectly eclectic, the styling and photographs make me feel all happy/tingly inside."
