Dogs, Kids, Fashion, Fun

It all began with two small shivering short hair dogs...
My grand dogs, a min pin and a jack rat terrier, arrived for a visit in the winter months of 2008. Being the self proclaimed fashion designer and seamstress that I am, I set to work on creating a pattern and sewing several warm polar fleece turtle neck pull-over sweaters for each of them. My creations became a hit with fellow dog walkers.

Forced into early retirement after 23 years I began my search for a new career to help support my family. My lifetime dream of working for myself, doing what I love, and creating unique items became a reality in 2010.

I've been sewing and crocheting since 8 years of age. I learned tailoring and professional finishing techniques from my mother in law, Mama, and how to crochet from a family friend, Estella. (I'm obsessed with granny squares and anything quirky!) My mother is a gifted artist, and my father a carpenter and creative genius. My sister can create something from nothing, she's a crafting wizard. We're all perfectionists, a blessing and a curse!...

I started an internet store selling just dog fashions and it has evolved into much more! Inspired by my teenage daughter, my four grandchildren, my love for the unusual, and of course my dogs, I've added new and different items. Nothing is mass produced, everything is handmade, and items are always changing to accommodate my unceasing need to create new things.

    I created PupsCulture to cultivate my creativity and my never ending desire to make beautiful things. My mind is overflowing with ideas and there's just not enough time in the day! I love to recycle/upcycle clothing, I call it Pupcycled.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 20, 2015
In business since 2010, my goal is to provide unique handmade modern boutique clothing and accessories for dogs and people. Made in the USA, all fashions are personally designed and handcrafted with quality materials and professional finishes. All items are created in limited quantities, usually one to two items of each style in each size. My "Pupcycled" items are created from clothing and soft goods re-purposed into unique fashions and accessories. I continually add new designs and seasonal items, so come back regularly.

I proudly support local pet rescue organizations in Las Vegas by donating my dog fleece pull-overs and coats to the dogs waiting for forever homes.
