Andra Aitken's Profile
Hi, I'm Andra Aitken, a dog-loving, crafty designer, living in the beautiful city of New Orleans. I began New Orleans Dog while I was finishing my Architectural Thesis. When Pedro, my adopted twelve year old dachshund, came to me 2 weeks before Hurricane Katrina, he was anxious and shivering. However, I quickly learned that he calmed down and seemed soothed when he wore his vest-like harness. So, inspired by this senior wiener’s love of clothing, I taught myself to screen print and began creating witty and playful graphic tees for dogs. My designs express passion for dogs, yoga, New Orleans, love and silliness. I hope my products bring a little laughter and a warm heart to your day.
Pedro has left his physical body, but his love is embedded in my heart (and our designs). My other muses Giussi, Luna and Milne carry on his inspiring legacy of silliness, snuggles and love…
