Hey Puppies collection presentation at Interzoo 2018

Hey Puppies at Interzoo

Hey Puppies have officially presented itself to the pet world during Interzoo 2018, the international pet industry’s leading exhibition located in Nuremberg, Germany.  From the 8th to the 11th of May 2018 about 38.600 visitors from 126 different countries have had the opportunity to meet our first eco friendly dog fashion brand collection.

That’s right, each of our pieces is a labor of love, handcrafted in a socially responsible way, using only sustainable materials and nickel free buttons.

Interzoo 2018: the eco friendly dog collection

First of all, in our way to design garments that are unique, we need to talk about our denim dog beds collection that features style and comfort for the perfect rest of your canine friend. The perfect complements for those nights on the sofa.

Our denim dog clothing line is the most innovative concept for dogs. We only use the most authentic indigo yarns and fabrics in order to eliminate waste.

Our organic line is 100% made of certified organic cotton. Sounds great right? It’s so natural that your pet will feel the garment as its second skin.

We also have a sustainable collection, more stylish and as just as planet friendly as the organic, becasue we don’t use chemical elements and we avoid harmful elements.

At Hey Puppies we deeply believe that every beautiful garment starts as a fantastic fabric. But what if the fabric reduces waste? This is the genesis of our Upcycled line, and our great challenge is transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, wanted products into new materials or products of better quality or which have a better environmental value.

“Of course all our buttons in all of our garments are nickel free to prevent bad skin reactions or dermatitis.”

That’s our goal, to provide fashionable options for your dog using thoughtful materials.

We have reserved the date for the next exhibition. Hey Puppies, the environmently friendly dog clothing brand, will be back at Interzoo on 2020 with pawsitive vibes. Visit us in Nuremberg from Tuesday 19 May until Friday 22 May.

Why choose organic materials for your dog

Choose organic materials for your dog

Putting the wrong clothes on your pets might be a risk for their health and be a trigger for dermatitis, allergies and other inflammatory diseases. Did you know that? That is why you have to choose organic materials for your dog.

Your puppy is not just a pet, it is a friend and part of your family. And taking care of your furry baby by offering quality food is not enough, at the time of dressing him it is also very important to pay attention to the clothes he wears. Skin problems is one of the main  reasons dogs may end at the veterinary.

Moreover there are several dog breeds that require special attention when dressing like the french bulldog, pug, chihuahua, pomeranians and many more. True comfort and quality materials are crucial in these cases.

Choose organic materials for your dog

This is one of the reasons we decided to create a new and natural ethical dog fashion concept. We choose only the highest quality organic and sustainable fabrics. Organic cotton, a “good friend of your “best friend” has natural antiallergic properties, and unlike many synthetic and acrylic materials, it is free of irritating chemicals.

Organic cotton is a very eco-friendly fabric as it is grown using methods that have a low impact on the environment, without pesticides, herbicides or other chemical fertilizers. Its seeds are GMO-free and it fabric is completely biodegradable.

Organic agriculture protects the health of people, animals and the planet by reducing the overall exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the ground, air, water and food supply, and are also associated with serious health issues.

Our mission for a better 4-legged world is just getting started! Support our Eco Friendly Dog Fashion Brand and dress your little friend with sustainable style and garments that help for a better environment.

Who says the best fashion is Italian?

Hey Puppies moda ecológica

We have witnessed heated debates about which country is “king of fashion”, but in our minds it is a waste of time, since fashion is a matter of taste and culture. We say forget about kings and queens! At Hey Puppies we believe in “Methods” over “Monarchs”.

As people become more aware of the impact that the fashion industry has on the environment, our focus should shift to a larger world view. If people demanded it, the entire industry would join us in using the healthiest materials to create fashion that respects the planet.

Hey Puppies was born in Spain, in the beautiful and inspiring city of Barcelona. We are motivated by a basic and simple idea: #RESPECT for the planet, for pets and for the people. Read more on: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/pawel-alva-nazaruk/why-should-we-take-care-o_b_12170852.html

With this in mind, we set out to create the best eco-fashion, made with the most sustainable and recyclable materials. Will this make us the top fashion designer in the world? We’ll let your dog decide! But our pet & planet friendly values certainly makes us proud and committed to create a better 6-legged world. #heypuppies

Upcycling: the new pet fashion challenge

Hey Puppies reutilización creativa

A few people know the exact meaning of upcycling and – as we are very sensitive to this matter – let’s spend a few words about this.

Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value. Downcycling, which is the other half of the recycling process, involves converting materials and products into new materials of lesser quality.

An average sized dog garment using fibers upcycled from PET bottles, can prevent 30 plastic bottles from becoming downcycled or worse, ending up as waste in a landfill.
