We are very proud to be able to introduce our new, unique and first of their kind, dog jackets handmade in Devon from upcycled waterproofs.
Each one is individually made to our own design from a waterproof jacket, making your dog jacket one of a kind – there will not be another like it in the world!
The original idea came from my dog Winnie, a Working Cocker. I had an old Northface Jacket that was too good to be recycled but not good enough to pass on to Charity. I could not bear the thought of it ending up in landfill..so “I wonder if I could make a jacket for Winnie?” the idea was born.
The trouble was finding someone to make them. It had taken nearly 3 years to get to this point, measuring dogs, making prototypes, having fittings and refitting’s, changing and developing the design, but we are here. And we hope you like them.
As the dog jackets are made from old waterproofs, they will have flaws, maybe a bit used, but that is the point, each dog jacket already has a story to tell. Some of them have cycled to Scotland, walked in the Dolomites, and been up mountains, they now have a second chance to explore with you and your dog.
At this point, I must say a big thank you to all of my grooming customers, walking groups and friends who have lent their dogs to be measured and remeasured, to try on samples and have donated jackets. In the future we will be using jackets from charity shops to continue to reuse and upcycle.
