At Mutts & Hounds we have long taken inspiration for our premium pet products from the countryside, picking up on woodland colours and taking influence from the gorgeous scenery around our office and the surrounding Cotswold villages.
Our exciting, new and somewhat different collection for dogs is inspired more specifically by one beautiful and regal creature, often found wandering some of the well known estates and stately homes of the area, the majestic Peacock.
One Peacock in particular, Percy - a local celebrity no less - is well known to all those who live and work in the village, and we have watched him come and go as he pleases for many years now.
Percy the Peacock of Yatton Keynell
The bright and eye-catching colours of a Percy’s tail feathers naturally make the most beautiful and unique pattern, which we have aimed to capture in this new fabric, designed in-house by a member of our team. This brand new colour-rich textile has been developed from a loose watercolour sketch, before being applied to a soft yet hardwearing fabric screen printed in England.
We are very pleased to introduce this collection, and share with you some of our favourite images from our current lookbook!
The new Peacock Collection, a must-have for discerning dogs, features all of Mutts & Hounds’ customer favourites including the donut and pillow dog beds, collars and leads, toys, harnesses and neckerchiefs. For humans there is also a select range of textiles for the home which now also includes handy wash bags – perfect for a weekend away or to brighten up a country bathroom.
“My favourite item from our new Peacock Collection has to be the dog lead; my dog’s collar is often hidden under his fur so I love having a good lead that is as beautifully designed as a collar and can be clearly seen when we’re out walking”
Laura, company director, and Frank the Border Terrier
“I’ve chosen the Peacock collar for my dog as it’s a bright contrast against her dark coat, fun with its pattern and colour but still stylish, and quite unique compared to any other collars she’s ever worn”
Katie, office co-ordinator, and Tinker the Springador
We had such fun shooting this collection with a host of beautiful and impeccably behaved dog models who all seemed quite taken with the new fabric! It has been great to see how our most colourful products to date have worked so well with a range of different coat colours and styles, from Severus and Lily's chocolate and black waves to Eddie's sandy coloured curls and Charlie's classic Daxie black and tan.
