Oasis Deskmats available here!
KAT Oasis captures the mysterious essence of desert existence and places it squarely beneath your fingertips on miniature dunes.
Deserts are multifaceted gems. They are pressure incarnate; oppressive heat and bitter cold cut unprepared travelers like diamond shards. Clear skies and beautiful colors also punctuate their harsh experience. Eventually, as time and necessity encourage exploration, people master that arid beauty.
Cultures that develop among the sands rely on will, imagination, and closely held skill to survive. That combination is mysterious and magical, encouraging spectacular tales to form amidst dreamlike drifts. Once those legends escape, they spread to captivate audiences around the world.
Oases define desert existence. They shape trade routes, politics, and folklore in a way that the West will never truly grasp. Most importantly, they provide resources and respite for life — even some agriculture.
Hidden oases and constructs are a storytelling staple. Even butchered translations, like those found in Arabian Nights, are devoured by readers around the world. KAT Oasis respectfully adapts that concept to a modern digital interface — your keyboard.
Kono deskmats are also available in this group buy. They feature an understated design inspired by desert artworks. Unlike sand, our deskmats provide a non-abrasive surface for your desktop accessories.
Extensive kit options accommodate vast numbers of keyboard layouts. MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) is low to ensure that more kits are produced. This allows for rarities like Arabic legends, blanks, and additional color options.
