Luxury accessories for dogs who want to look the bees-knees.
Established in 2015, The Distinguished Dog Company is a quintessentially British brand, based in the rolling countryside of Devon. We design and make products for the most discerning dogs that want to look and feel the bees-knees. The inspiration behind the brand is the rather eccentric Lhasa Apso named Nusandilly Rocket Man, or Mr Gatsby to his friends. It all began when we were looking for a bow tie for him for our wedding, and couldn't find anything with a fashion forward feel and level of quality that we thought he deserved. Once the wedding was over, I started making bow ties for him and he wore them everywhere, they seemed to give him an extra spring in his step and sophisticated swagger.
Taking inspiration from the fashion world, the trend-led, sophisticated collection is completely handcrafted resulting in unique pieces that are perfect for dogs with individuality and impeccable taste. We only use high quality materials and finishes that every stylish dog deserves.
A lot of time is taken in choosing the fabrics for our bow ties and neckerchiefs. First and foremost it is about the quality, I always ask myself two questions:
1. It is it making a statement?
2. Would a human think that this is too good for a dog?
if the answer is yes then the fabric is purchased and the making begins. All of the fabric products are made by me from start to finish. I am lucky enough to have access to an industrial sewing machine which has made a huge difference to the amount of sewing i can get done in a day.
I have expanded the range to include greeting cards due to my love of graphic typefaces and pointillism. The illustrative process is something completely different for me, away from the sewing machine and I really enjoy it. The 'I love you' collection was inspired by Mr Gatsby and all of his loves. I am sure that this will grow as I encourage people to tell me their dog's favourite things.
