Velvet Hippo applies their experience in the furniture and fashion industry to design refined dog beds and chew toys, without garish colours or messy patterns. A particularly luxuriant addition is the ethically sourced Asher Icelandic sheepskin throw. It’s naturally repellent to water and enticingly warm, so your favourite friend will be hard to shift once they sink their paws into it. Velvet Hippo truly celebrates the interconnectivity of dog and human and cross-species cohabitation. Comfort for them, aesthetic for you; it’s the best of both worlds.
We are thrilled to introduce Dog-Friendly, a collection of city guides for dog-loving people, created together with our long-time contributor, photographer Winnie Au, and fellow enthusiasts, indie publisher Hoxton Mini Press. Available for purchase here.

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound? That’s exactly what San Francisco-based artist Michael Gillette has done through his unique illustration project, blending beloved, iconic music legends, both past and present, with their dog counterparts. Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.
