Notes from Trish

What’s your pup’s sign?

by Trish Hampton on November 27, 2018

Have you ever looked at a drawing and just...smiled? That big kind of smile that starts in your cheeks and spreads towards your heart? It’s the kind of feeling I remember from when I was a little girl at storytime: listening to the librarian read the page aloud and waiting in anticipation for the librarian to turn the book towards me, so that I could finally see the pictures. Yeah, that’s the kind of feeling that Olive & Company illustrations give me; it’s that kind of joy.

About Trish Hampton

People ask how we started and the story goes like this. In 2002, Trish got her first dog, a beautiful American Bulldog named Maggie. After searching store to store she realized she wasn't going to find anything special enough for her 100 lb lap dog. So, to the design studio she went. After scouring the garment district in NYC for ribbon, webbing, and hardware she sat at the sewing machine and put together a few styles of collars and started giving them away to friends and family. A local pet store was delivering food to one of those friends, saw the collar, asked the friend to have Trish come to his store. This store in Ridgefield, Connecticut was our first customer - he loved what he saw and ordered our line (Trish didn't know what a line was!), but two weeks later, sewing 20 hours a day she delivered her first order. The rest you'd say is history.

Today the inspiration in our studio has changed from having a calm, loving, sweet girl named Maggie, to having 2 toddler boys, Spencer and Cooper and a high energy pup named Finley - needless to say it's quite a crazy place. But, our goal has not changed and that is to always create beautiful handmade gifts that you will enjoy giving your loved ones — whether they be your child, your friend, or your best four–legged friend. All of our products are handmade here in the United States with quality, durability and style in mind.
