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

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.
