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 SEVEN — PRE-ORDER NOW

We are excited to announce our seventh issue is now available to pre-order.
This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
