I started my small business after I left college at 17, and have always loved all animals but especially dogs. Living in Cornwall where it’s so dog friendly I wanted to make my own dog collars leads and reversible bandanas.
I firstly started selling at small craft markets in tourist locations in Cornwall, and it took over two years to get online, which I managed to do just before Covid hit (thankfully).
In August I was awarded the NMTF award for best young trader of the south west which was great! I only buy by fabrics from UK sellers – mostly small or independent so maintain the buy British ethos.
