Quintessentially English products for hound and home
Founded in 2011 by Director Laura, the company grew from the meeting of her love of animals and passion for designing and creating clothing. After adopting her first dog Charlie she realised her two loves could be combined, and thus Mutts & Hounds was formed.
With a degree in Fashion & Textiles and couture-level experience of pattern cutting, Laura began designing products focusing on an innately British style and sensibility, not forgetting the importance of practicality for country living.
Today Mutts & Hounds offers a wide range of products, each inspired by the English countryside surrounding the company’s headquarters in rural Wiltshire. The signature collection incorporates a range of bespoke printed linens and cottons as well as quality quilted fabrics, waxed waterproofs with warm Sherpa fleece and wool tweeds spun in Yorkshire.
The majority of production takes place in-house, allowing the dedicated team the flexibility to introduce new pieces and optimise best-sellers. The product range is constantly being reviewed and refreshed to offer customers seasonal fabrics and playful accessories that compliment the iconic collection of beds, collars and leads.
Mutts & Hounds is stocked in over 200 stores and boutiques in 18 countries, including John Lewis and Selfridges in the UK, and ships globally from Muttsandhounds.co.uk
Meet The Team
(Left to right; Megan, Mandy, Laura, Sophie & Katie-Jayne )
Megan heads up our sewing team, coordinating the creation of many of our lines including Pillow Beds, Harnesses and Bone Toys. When she isn’t sewing to order, Megan works on product design and development, and is currently designing a new fabric for Spring/Summer 2017.
Seamstress Mandy is our star behind the sewing machine, helping us to meet the trickiest of orders to sometimes very tight deadlines, and always finishing products to the highest standard.
As Director Laura oversees everything at Mutts & Hounds, maintaining a very hands-on role within the company. Laura is always on the lookout for inspiration for future collections, each beginning with a chat with the team over tea (and usually cake!), and developing over time into a complete range of products for hound and home.
Marketing and Communications Officer Sophie works on digital design and marketing campaigns as well as managing customer communications and dispatching orders. She is behind our social media pages, emails and website design, and is therefore always on the lookout for Wiltshire's Next Top Dog Model!
Katie-Jayne joined the company in 2016 as our Office Coordinator, and came to us with a background in account management and customer service as well as years of experience in the Equine and Dog industries. With a range of responsibilities from HR to finance, Katie-Jayne ensures everything is running smoothly alongside her day-to-day task of managing trade accounts and researching new business opportunities.
