Beautiful Handmade Gifts & Accessories for Dogs & Dog Lovers
Dogs & Roses, specialises in Dog Accessories & Handmade gifts for Dog Lovers.
My inspiration comes from my own dogs & I am constantly thinking about new ideas of how to extend my range & service. My company logo is based on my own beloved Whippet, Lucca, that passed away, way to soon.
Primarily, I've been working with textiles, but I have also been designing for my own range of ceramic mugs that I have been developing, using ink & watercolour.
I have a particular love of sight hounds but can be persuaded to make pretty much any breed. My mini-me decorations have been very popular this Christmas. A posthumous portrait on canvas or cushion can be a very thoughtful memento and a very special gift. Please contact me, should you wish to discuss further, as I can work from photographs to produce a truly unique item.
In 2014, I designed a tea towel for charity, with 100% of the profits going to 4 Greyhound rescue charities, 2 in the UK & 2 in Spain. The design was inspired by 112 Carlota Galgos, whose orchard, is used as a place for the dogs to recuperate from appalling abuse & neglect & the ethos that all of the dogs deserve a 'forever home'.
This Christmas I have also donated a percentage of sales from my sitting Sighthound range to 'The Greyhound Sanctuary' in Devon as the design is based on the rescue's logo & this is where 2 of my team came from. (With permission of course)
In 2015 I am hoping to have a small out-building turned into a work studio, as at the moment, my work encroaches very much on our living space!!!
I very much want to turn this into a full-time business & in doing so, be able to support some of my favourite charities.
