FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT

Proudly stamped on Howlpot’s website is the declaration: “We stand for companion animals’ design rights.” Established only a year ago in South Korea, Howlpot decided from the outset that good design and craftsmanship are of key importance to their brand. “Machines still cannot imitate the details and durability of hand-made products made by artisans who have more than decades of experience in what they do,” said Junho Im, director of Howlpot. “We want to make every product with the human touch, we think it is the least we can do for our four-legged buddies.”

The unique conical shape of Howlpot’s ‘Howly’ dog bed makes it the brand’s most popular product, but they also create beautiful handmade ceramic bowls, practical hammocks and colourful collars and leads made from nylon rope and Italian leather. As well as keeping busy with orders, Howlpot recently hosted an exhibition in Seoul called ‘Pupp-Art’, inviting local artists to create works related to the theme of ‘companion animals.’ Naturally, visitors were encouraged to bring their pets along.

ISSUE NINE — BUY NOW

In our Spring issue, there’s much to be in high spirits about. We go behind the scenes of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, a movie fuelled by dopamine, alpha dogs, and a vast crew of artisans and animators. We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We celebrate Sulek’s photography of rescued Spanish galgos, Jo Longshurst’s abstract twist on pet portraiture, and Ho Hai Tran’s love of stripes and spots. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. We ask five foodies to fess up about dog snacks and guilty pleasures that feed body and soul, and we embrace illustrator Apolline Muet’s bear hugs between humans and animals.
All this, and more, inside the covers.
