About

Handmade Hounds Oozing with Character

I am self taught textile artist based in Croydon, South London with my Swedish rescue dog Maggie Cocker Spaniel and husband Mr HH. I am always on the lookout for quirky characterful hounds in local parks, where ever and when ever, that inspire me to make my one off companions.

After leaving the UK in 2000 to live in Romania, The Netherlands and Sweden I followed a creative path in painting, stitching and 3D sculpture concentrating on doggy characters I met during my travels. Since returning to the UK in 2014 I have developed these characters using recycled natural fabric, stitching, appliqué and needle -felting into the unique fellows that can be seen today. The latest collaboration with Sam Tofts' Little Mustard Shop in Brighton in December 2017 has given me a new and exciting platform for my work.

Welcome to Hawkes' Hounds, where everthing in the store is made and designed by me, Catherine Hawkes in a quiet corner of South London, England
My philosophy is simple really, to recycle previously work-a-day household fabric and lovely pure wool socks and felt into unique character animals.
As gifts for over 12s or adults they can be personalised at your request, with names embroidered onto bodies or collars, just let me know.

Returns and exchanges
I hope I have described all items accurately and trust you will be delighted with them. If an item is faulty or found to be damaged on arrival please contact me for a replacement or repair ( some vintage / nostagic materials cannot be replaced and a near alternative will be used instead).
If, in the unlikely event you think the item does not come up to the description and isn't what you want contact me to arrange return and a refund.
Payment
FASTEST METHOD:
The easiest way to pay for an item is with Paypal, the process is very quick and I can despatch to you within 2 working days of payment.
SLOWER METHOD:
I can also accept Euro payment or UK Sterling payment via bank transfer, again you need to contact me to get account details.

MUCH SLOWER METHOD:
I am also able to accept UK cheque payments but if you do pay by cheque I need to make sure it has cleared before despatch and this could delay despatch by 10 days.
Shipping
Items are sent Standard class which takes between 3 - 5 working days. If you want the express service which takes 2 - 3 days let me know.
I take orders to the local post office and they are despatched the same day.
Postage costs do not include insurance and again, let me know if you want to include it and I will get a price for you.
I will confirm via ETSY when the item has been despatched to assist you in tracking items.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am more than happy to accept custom orders and of course wholesale orders.
