At Trish Hampton we hand-make every dog collar, dog harness, dog leash, dog bow tie, and dog bandanas in our Rhode Island boutique. We source only the best materials: high-fashion designer materials that are sure to get your pup noticed, yet tough enough to handle a romp in the woods or a day at the beach. Get out there and get noticed.
People ask me how I got my business started and the story goes like this. In 2002, I got my first dog, a beautiful American Bulldog named Maggie. After searching store to store I realized I wasn't going to find anything special enough for my 100 lb lap dog. So, to the design studio I went. After scouring the garment district in NYC for ribbon, webbing, and hardware I 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 me come to his store. This store in Ridgefield, Connecticut was our first customer - he loved what he saw and ordered our line (I didn't know what a line was!), but two weeks later, sewing 20 hours a day I 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 teen 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.
