Announcement   Welcome to Lulu & Chance, home of luxury dog accessories, unique gifts and modern homeware, inspired by country life and made in England. Find tweed dog coats, collars and leads, dog bow ties and bandanas, hen saddles, home accessories and pretty gifts. All work is handmade in my little creation space in the beautiful English countryside.

I started making dog accessories after finding there were limited options available in high street shops, and that there were lots of mass-produced and poor quality items on the market. As a dog-owner, I know that individuality and quality are really important and this is always my focus.

The other items you'll find in my shop are often inspired by requests from friends and family for functional yet attractive items, including our hen saddles and phone cushions.

I have been sewing for 20 years and each item is made completely by hand. Wherever possible fabrics are woven in Britain, with most of my tweed coming from Scotland and Yorkshire. I always endeavour to use natural textiles - we’re trying to minimise our plastic use!

You can shop by category below this section to the left.

The little Tweed wool coat is adorable, very well made. We always receive compliments while out on our walks. I can recommend this coat for all doggies that want to make a statement in their neighbourhood.

About

Handmade lovelies for animals and their parents, crafted with care in the Hampshire countryside.

I can't remember not being fascinated by the making process. Over the years I think I have tried everything but I always come back to a love of textiles. Whenever we visit a museum or stately home I drive my family mad by spending ages staring at the stitches in a cushion cover or trying to see how the curtain fabric was woven!

I watched my Mum make our clothes when I was small, and loved the process of making something so flat turn into a pretty party dress, and knowing that no-one else would wear the same thing. So for my 21st birthday, when everyone else asked for a car or a gold watch, I asked for a sewing machine, and that very same machine is the one I use for most of my work.

I endeavour to only use natural fabrics which, when they've fulfilled their destiny, will biodegrade. I especially love wool and tweed, and will always try to use British wool wherever possible.

Dogs are everything! I was raised with them, and I just love all of them; big and small, fancy and working. Since moving to the countryside I am lucky enough see and meet all sorts of wildlife and a massive variety of domestic animals.

Chance was the dog I adopted when I was 22. A huge English Mastiff, who came to me underweight, frightened and unloved, he gave me unconditional love and trust. I miss him every day, and always said I'd name my business after our perfect partnership. Lulu was one of my many childhood nicknames.

I'm now the proud Mummy to Neville, a Chocolate Labrador. He's a typical Lab - mischievous, enthusiastic, loving and always with something in his mouth! To see what he gets up to, make sure to follow me on instagram @lulu_and_chance
