If you are a crafter, sewer, knitter you have heard of Columbia Minerva as you roam through the yarn and thread isles at a craft store. They were early PupStylers and didn’t even know it!
Minerva understood the value of incorporating dogs in advertising and marketing to sell fashion. If a pretty model is holding a cute Maltese near here face, the dog just makes the model even more beautiful and harder to forget the brand. Right on Minerva!
Nothing barks PupStyle louder than chic winter gloves with dog in the palms of your hands. Walking your dog in style just got warmer thanks to TalkingGloves in Istanbul, Turkey. They hand craft these sassy accessories from a soft lambswool blend making them soft and toasty.
Most of the designs are unisex in style and color and both kids and adults love them. They make a great holiday gift and fashion piece. The minimalist dog shapes keep them looking clean and modern.
Pair these with a plaid or checked scarf and your favorite torn jeans and leather boots for a perfect fall/winter look! They also offer cat versions for the feline lovers out there so it’s easy one stop gift shopping.
The fingerless gloves are ideal for the multi tasking dog walker. You can keep a tight grip on the leash, easily pull out pick-up bags from your pocket and answer texts all while flawlessly drinking a latte.
A really special gift at $36 plus shipping and handling.
