Where possible, I will always do all I can to support small businesses. As a small business owner myself, I know that when you support an small business you are not just putting food on the table, you are supporting their dream.
When I comes to accessories for Alfie, I only shop small business. Knowing each product has been lovingly handmade really is important to me. I saw a recent post by my friend Steph where she shared her favourites… I thought i’d jump on the bandwagon and share mine too! We all love some shopping recommendations, right?
Made for Mutts
I have known Charlotte, the owner of Made for Mutts for a number of years. It has been amazing to watch her business evolve to what it is today, it is safe to say the hard work really is paying off!
Made for Mutts has a whole range of gorgeous accessories for your dog, from fabulous florals to little dickie bows there will be something there you love!
Bramble and Friends
Oh I just love Bramble and Friends, Tamsyn creates the most wonderful pieces for your dog… I first found Bramble and Friends over on Instagram, I spent many a month drooling over her fabulous tweed creations.
Earlier this year we collaborated, creating “The Alfie” a gorgeous Harris Tweed tweed set individually designed to suit my little Alfie! It is just gorgeous!
I couldn’t not include Hindquarters, This brand is pretty much designed for the action dog… Tough durable products that can really be put to the test.
It is so hard to find good quality products that can not only keep up with Alf at his best, but look stylish. This is where Hindquarters is different. Sleek and edgy pieces perfect for the fashion conscious hound.
The January Rose
The January Rose is another company I am ever so fond of… It is safe to say I have a slight addiction to their bow ties! I have the whole range of tweedy numbers, they look fabulous. I love following owner Louise and her gorgeous little pup Rosie on Instagram, She is just the cutest.
For dainty accessories, I always recommend TJR.. All lovingly handmade! You’ll fall in love with them in no time.
Bib & Tucker
My Bib & Tucker accessories are a firm favourite in my collection. When it comes to neckerchiefs look no further than Bib & Tucker, Their quality and style is perfection.
I have been so lucky to work with them closely over the years, featuring in their advertising in both Vogue and GQ Magazine… It really is a dream come true!
I hope you have enjoyed hearing our favourites, I’ve actually ordered a couple of pieces from some new brands recently. I will be sure to keep you updated – I can tell already that there will be some new favourites to come!
