We are a tiny, home-based company located in Seattle, Washington. Every collar, leash and wedding harness is handmade from start to finish by myself and my husband Dave, with modeling help from our Shiba Inu, Link, constructive criticism from our Siamese cat, Yoda, and inspiration from the memory of our first cat, She-ra.
K-nine Couture began when I couldn't find collars to fit Link properly when he was a puppy. I started making my own out of silk brocades that I had been collecting and stashing for years, and the process became addicting. I made so many leash & collar sets for Link and our cats that I had to start selling some in order to make room for more!
Around this time I had a childhood friend get in touch with me with a problem that needed solving; she and her fiancé wanted their beloved labrador, Asa, to be the ring-bearer at their wedding but they couldn't figure out how to make it work. I did some brainstorming and designed them a harness that would allow Asa to wear a ring pillow on her back. It was such a success that I added the Ring-Bearer Wedding Harness to our shop the following month.
Our pets are a very important part of our family and we design and construct all of our products with them in mind. Over the years our products have evolved and improved but we continue to stand by our founding principle; to make beautiful, unique items that are custom designed to fit.
