Meet Hiro+Wolf

Say hello to our new friends across the pond — Hiro+Wolf and their gorgeous line of designer dog collars and leashes. The story: founders Amy and Bee met while walking their dogs (Hiro and Wolf of course) in London Fields. Their background in fashion, design, and handcraft is obvious – they bring a freshness to each design and thoughtful quality details — we especially appreciate the leather  reinforcements and sturdy construction, and the geometric designs are  chic without being frilly.


H+W is offering our readers Free Shipping (for a limited time)! Use code SHIPFREE4MODDOG when you check out from their Etsy Shop, and then email us a picture of your pet wearing one of their collars! (Ok, that’s optional, but come on, we want to see pictures…)
