Founded in England in 2003 with the concept of producing high quality contemporary fashion for people and their pets. our parent company, established in 1978, are makers of high quality leather accessories to the high end fashion industry and the equine world.

We have a long history of designing for other fashion houses, including Hugo Boss, Paul Smith, Harvey Nichols, Harrods, Swarovski, and Vogue Magazine amongst many other well-known brands. We also design and make commission pieces for T.V., film, theatre and stage wear for many celebrities and rock and pop stars including Mick Jagger, Elton John, David Bowie, U2, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Duran Duran, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Streisand, to name a few, and have enjoyed the patronage of UK and foreign royalty. 

For over 18 years, our company designed costumes for the London production of Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber’s hit musical “Starlight Express” and we have created pieces for the musical “Cats”, English National Opera productions and Hollywood films. Our latest commission was for a pair of cheetahs who featured in Sir Ridley Scott’s film, The Counselor, starring Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and Michael Fassbender. 

Designing and manufacturing high quality leather goods for the pet industry was a natural progression for the company. We have a passion for dogs and other companion animals, and for over 30 years have been involved in showing and judging dogs at the highest level. Our  dogs are our closest companions and a constant inspiration for the design work created in our studios.
