About

Our House of Cats and Dogs

We started our house because we love our cats and dogs (Chatice in Portugal and Bess in Holland) and found it difficult to find interesting and stylish minimalist, functional, quality product that would suit them and look good in our environment.

As designers, developers and buyers in the fashion industry, we decided to use our experience to create things for them, and a few for us. Our philosophy is to design and make simple, functional, enjoyable products in a responsible, ethical, and fair way.

We use solid cork, cork fabric, & cork granules for insulation and protection combined with Burel wool (from the mountains of the Serra da Estrela and made on looms from the 1930s to 1960s), and Lona cotton canvas (from the North of Portugal from archive patterns stretching back 100 years and made on Picanol looms from the 1950s).

Our products are designed and made in Portugal by hand and by us whenever possible.
We will always let you know when one of our special partners makes something for us.
