An interview with Teddy Maximus - British Made Designer Dog Products
Teddy Maximus is a fantastic British dog apparel and accessories designer that offers beautiful collections that boast comfort and style for your dog. The Pink or Sand Shetland wool collections offer your dog the same pattern style for everything they could need – lead, collar, harness, bed, dog carrier, bow tie and neckerchief.
In this interview, we speak to the Director of Teddy Maximus Holly for you to know more about how she started and more about the brand and her British made designer dog products.
Aurora Pets: Can you tell us about Teddy Maximus and the inspiration behind your brand.
Holly: Teddy Maximus is all about fun, luxury British style - I was inspired by my dachshund Teddy to create a brand that embraced craftsmanship and style. As a dachshund of distinction, if it doesn't pass Teddy's paw of approval then you won't see it :-) having a resident pooch on hand to put everything to the test ensures that our products are designed to last!
We are delighted to be the official pet partner at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hyde Park - one of the most prestigious addresses in the city.
Aurora Pets: Are all of your products made in the UK?
Holly: We are really proud to support British manufacturing and craftsmanship. Our products are made in the UK using the finest materials and trimmings. For example, our brass collar fittings come from an English foundry, our leather carrier straps are hand cut in London and our signature print fabric is printed in the UK.
Aurora Pets: Which designers have been the biggest influence on you?
Holly: London is a source of huge inspiration. We love the interiors of our hotel partner The Mandarin Oriental, the stunning London townhouses and their gorgeous floral displays as well as London Fashion Week of course!
Aurora Pets: Which of your products is your favourite so far? (Sorry know this is probably hard to answer!)
Holly: This is a hard one! For summer we love our Liberty print bow which is perfect for parties and weddings. For the year-round style, it's all about our Shetland collection - our lead and collar set is the perfect outfit for dapper dogs. For Spring 'The Rose' lead and collar set will be sure to brighten your day - it's such a gorgeous colour and so soft!
Aurora Pets: What does luxury mean to the Teddy Maximus brand?
Holly: Luxury should be both chic and comfortable. It's about using the finest materials with heritage. Luxury should also be timeless and designed to last.
Aurora Pets: How would you describe Teddy Maximus in three words?
Holly: Fun, Luxury, British.
