It’s not often we come across a company as lovely as Mutts & Hounds, so when we do we like to share it with our readers! The Bath-based company design and make stylish and quintessentially English products for hound and home. Founded in 2011, with previous experience in pattern cutting, dog coat design and a degree in fashion & textiles, founder Laura Gough recognised a need for beautiful, well made and well fitting dog products that supported British manufacturing and suited the country set as well as the forward thinking fashionistas of the city.
Today Mutts & Hounds still retain a vast majority of their manufacturing at their workshops in north Wiltshire or the neighbouring county of Somerset. They also source a number of further skills, fabrics and products from London, Yorkshire, Leicestershire and Lancashire.
Our standout faves from their spring/summer range are as follows!
