Following open heart surgery in 2002, walking was recommended. Morgan, my neighbour’s dog, walked with me. By November, she was walking on 3 legs – too cold for her. After trying socks and cut up people sweaters, I knew there had to be a better solution.
Having discovered there were patterns for pet clothing, I bought one-dressed Morgan and Island Petwear was born!
19 years later, having a seasonal brick and mortar store, I decided to work exclusively from my home-based studio.
For the pet parents who buy “off the rack” and find clothing that does not fit, then Island Petwear is here for alterations.
My main interest is designing and manufacturing clothing for pets – mostly dogs.
