Dawn Cassara's Artful Treasures

American Made Since 1992

Dawn Cassara

Amenia, New York
Taking a centuries-old tradition to another level, I design and paint one-of-a-kind, heirloom-quality floorcloths, placemats & table runnners.
Design,

Tell us about your business.

A court stenographer by trade with no formal art training, my passion for floorcloths began after I designed and created my first floorcloth in the early 1990s. Friends and family gave me many compliments and placed orders, but it wasn't until I put my house on the market and complete strangers wanted to buy my work that I realized I could start a business doing something I enjoyed so much. Dedicated to creating unique, one-of-a-kind hand-painted floorcloths, placemats, table runners, wallhangings and furniture which are not only decorative but functional, many hours of time and attention are given to each piece, utilizing the highest-quality materials to ensure durability. As a single mother of three children, I am blessed to have a home studio where I can care for my children hands-on. Oftentimes the children can be found working on their artwork in the studio beside me. Together we learn and inspire one another! I aspire to teach other women and grow my business.
