Our haberdashery focuses on man's best friend, and we pride ourselves on designing one-of-a-kind clothing for dogs that are well made, comfortable, and adorable.
Kori Pollington Owner & Designer
How Did She Start Sewing?
Coming from a family of seamstresses (her grandmother was a professional seamstress), Kori began sewing in middle school and continued her love for sewing through college and into adulthood. Or, as Kori puts it, "It's just something I've always done. I've had many good teachers who taught me the importance of attention to detail and that's what makes sewing fun for me."
She began making clothing for her dogs for fun after seeing pet clothing in stores and thinking, " I can make that, and the quality will be much better!" The first one she ever made was a Seattle Seahawks outfit.
Why Does She Sew?
She draws inspiration from little girls' clothes and enjoys incorporating unconventional elements like lights and spikes into her designs. She dreams about designs, finding inspiration around her and recording them in a notebook of sticky notes with design inspirations. To her, sewing is a joy giver, a stress reliever, and best of all she hopes her creations help create many happy memories and activities for you and your pup.
Rusty & Sophie Models & Inspiration
Rusty and Sophie are part of Kori's family and the models and inspiration behind so many of her outfits. Sophie was rescued from a puppy mill by Dachshund Rescue Northwest and, until joining Kori's family in 2013, she had never before even been on a leash.
