Combining a passion for sustainability with a love of her canine friends, Ella Peters launches a new luxury range of dog accessories with Skylos Collective.
Skylos Collective offers a range of vibrant coloured dog leads, collars and poop bag holders, all produced in 'apple leather' (a bio-based material made from the waste of the apple juicing and compote industry in Italy), and manufactured by craftsmen here in the UK.
Ella says, "This first collection pulls together my learnings from the ethical fashion industry and applies them to the pet world with products that combine innovative design with function and transparent sustainable practices.
"With sustainability at the forefront of many consumers' minds, I wanted to create a product range for dogs that mirror the values of its owners.
"Committed to transparent working practices, our manufacturing is undertaken in Lancashire, and we are really excited to be working with retailers, who like us, believe our canine friends deserve the best."
With Skylos meaning dog in Greek, the company's first collection (which is now available to purchase wholesale) comes in five vibrant colourways, with leads, different sized collars and poop bag holders available in each colour.
Ella adds: "With transparency key to everything we do at Skylos, we are embracing technology that enables our whole value chain to be viewed simply by scanning the QR code found on our tags. Via the QR code you will be able to learn more about our sustainability efforts, the UN's sustainable development goals we are contributing to; as well as our commitment to donate 2% to the Animal Welfare Society of South Africa."
