1841 Arrowsmith Texas
This wonderful reproduction of the original antique engraved “Map of Texas” was published by John Arrowsmith, London circa 1841. This map documents the development of towns and counties in Texas, pointing out the location of Indian tribes, roads, and natural features. The Arrowsmith family’s firm was the largest and best known publisher of the day. Because of the accuracy, this map became one of the most popular and influential maps of the Republic of Texas. The Republic of Texas existed from 1836 to 1845 and was formed from a Mexican state which seceded and declared independence. It encompassed an area which included all of the present-day State of Texas as well as parts of the present-day states of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming. Both the United States and France recognized and sent diplomats to the Republic of Texas during this time period and trade was engaged in with Great Britain.

Hand-made Rattan Frames
Though the design has changed over the years, we commission these Rattan frames through a small family owned company in The Philippines. Your frame is the result of trial and error of the last 20 years! Rattan is a vine-like Palm that requires forest cover in order to thrive. Rattan grows throughout the jungle for over a quarter of a mile. Its trunk can span a diameter of over two inches down to the thickness of a human hair. The harvester’s collection process is performed by hand by a simple machete. Ultimately, the rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Rattan quickly regenerates. As a result, this method of harvesting protects the destruction of the forest.
