History

With a wealth of expertise in designing and making specialist handmade leather goods, Diamond Dogs was founded in England in 2003 with the concept of producing high quality contemporary fashion for people and their pets using traditional, skilled English craftsmanship. Our parent company, established in 1978, are makers of high quality leather accessories to the horse world and high end fashion stores. We have a long history of designing for other fashion houses, including Hugo Boss, Paul Smith, Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Swarovski, amongst many other well-known brands. We also design and make commission pieces for T.V., film, theatre and stage wear for many celebrities and rock and pop stars.

Diamond Dogs’ latest commission was for 3 sets of collars and leads for a pair of cheetahs who featured in Sir Ridley Scott’s 2013 film, The Counselor, starring Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and Michael Fassbender.

For over 18 years, our company designed costumes for the London production of Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber’s hit musical “Starlight Express” and for the European tour of the show. We have created pieces for the musical “Cats”, English National Opera productions, Hollywood films, and for many celebrities including Mick Jagger, Elton John, David Bowie, U2, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Duran Duran, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Streisand and for royalty in the UK and abroad.

Designing and manufacturing high quality leather goods and apparel for the pet industry was a natural progression for the company. We have a passion for dogs and other companion animals, and for over 25 years have been involved in breeding, training, showing and judging dogs at the highest level. There are currently 12 dogs who share our lives. They are our closest companions and a constant inspiration for the design work that is created in our studios.

Diamond Dogs creates a fusion of quality materials, traditional skilled craftsmanship, contemporary fashion and high design to bring you and your animal companions the very best handmade products.
