Koalas for WIRES Collection

Posted by Louise Sutherland in Charity, Handmade Dog Collars, New Products
Although I was was born and grew up in New Zealand, when I was little we went to live in a mining town in North West Australia. We were there for five years, I had the time of my life, and I consider I was so lucky as a child to have that opportunity. We lived on the edge of town the outback was at the end of our garden, and sometimes the wildlife was literally on the door step, probably a bit too close for my mum’s liking with having a fearless tom-boy! We often had Goannas (Large Lizards), Snakes and Pelicans appear in our garden. We even had a Joey stay the night in a pillow case on the back of a chair, until a Wildlife Officer collected it the next day, my Dad came across a dead Kangaroo on the side of the road and he checked its pouch.
My heart has been breaking for all the people and animals that have suffered over the last couple of months with the Australian Wildfires, and although we as a family have made donations to WIRES  I wanted to be able to do more. When I saw that one of my fabric suppliers had a very cute Koala fabric the idea came to me - I needed to make some Koala products in aid of WIRES.
So introducing our Koalas for WIRES Collection - Koala Dog Collars, Treat & Poo Bag Holders and Bow Ties! They are available in two colours - cream and mint. 
For every product sold from the Koala range we will donate 20% of the cost to WIRES to help them to continue caring for all the animals that need it.

Are you a Liberty Lover?

Posted by Louise Sutherland in Handmade Dog Collars, Liberty Dog Collars, New Stock, News

If you follow us on social media you may have seen that I have been to Liberty of London this week to stock up on some new and popular fabrics, I love that I can pop in and see what is new. Every time I go into the store I find something different it's like an Aladdin's cave and that is even before I get to the fabric department. 

On this visit I bought a new fabric - introducing our new Apple Blossom Dog Collars featuring a white blossom with light blue leaves on a fresh green background. They are available in all sizes and with either a Metal or Plastic Clip.
