Traditional Dog Bandana by Arton & Co
People have been dressing animals for centuries, in fact there is even evidence that the ancient Egyptians were using decorative neck-wear to adorn their pet’s centuries ago. In 1440 BC, the ancient nobleman, Maiharpiri, was laid to rest with a collar belonging to his dog, Tantanouit who he would have wanted to take into the afterlife with him. During the reign of King Henry VIII, dogs were given decorative collars of silver, gold, silk and velvet to indicate how many battles the dogs had survived. Fast forward 500 years and with the birth of the internet, dog fashion has since become a global business.

They take existing styles and combine them with their own quintessentially British influence thus creating a stylish working product for your pet but also a reflection of your individual style.
