The Alfie | Bramble & Friends

I have something a little different for you today, something very special indeed… We have collaborated with Bramble & Friends to create a very special collar and lead set. A set designed specifically with Alfie in mind.

First I feel I must tell you a little bit more about Bramble & Friends. Bramble & Friends are based up in Scotland, creator Tamsyn wanted to combine her love for dogs and love of sewing. Inspired by her gorgeous Boston Terrier Bramble, Tamsyn started creating eye-catching designs. These designs are both comfortable and durable – Perfect for those mud loving adventure dogs. Using traditional leather, natural hemp and quality tweeds she brings a classic twist to the canine marketplace.

When I first spoke with Tamsyn I knew exactly what I had in mind for “The Alfie”. It needed to be able to withstand Alfie at his best [mud monster] but it also needs to be smart and sophisticated. so he can look smart when we need to dress up a bit!  Of course Tweed was my priority! I am still obsessed. We ended up going with a combination of the three materials, a nice sturdy leather collar with a gorgeous Harris Tweed! Then a Tweed and natural hemp lead.

I wanted to keep the colours traditional, opting for the gorgeous olive-green tweed – It is always the colour I go for… Also helps that it looks fabulous on Alfie. What is a collar and lead set without a matching bow tie? I just could not resist this one! It’s slightly larger than those I usually dress him in but it I really like that style on him… You simply attach by sliding it onto the collar with the elastic straps. Perfect for those trips out, or adding a bit of class to a trip up the pub!

Want to know what’s even better? You too can purchase your very own “The Alfie”… Simply head over to the Bramble & Friends website – Be sure to share photos of your pooches looking fabulous in their set.

A huge thank you to Bramble & Friends for creating the such a beautiful piece, it has been a firm favourite in Alfie’s wardrobe.
