ABOUT US
Creature Clothes strive to create beautiful, ethical and environmentally aware products for you, your pets, your kids and your home.  We design everything in-house, test all of our products with our intrepid team of testers before sale, and manufacture all of our goods in the UK, primarily in our Suffok workshop.
 
Founded in 1999 by designer Cosima Pole, Creature Clothes was borne out of a collar Cosi made for Vodka her black labrador out of an old necklace… every time Cosi and Vodka went anywhere, to the park, on the train, to the shops – people would ask where “that” collar came from.  Cosi went to Menorca to work with a traditionally skilled leather worker and one apprenticeship later Creature Clothes was born.

#marchmeetthemaker Day 23 | Top Tip or Advice:
For this one I have to reference Newt Scamander. When Newt is a student at Hogwarts and looks at the boggart in his Defence Against The Dark Arts Lesson, the boggart turns into a desk, paperwork and a “normal job”. This made me chuckle as it is always what I have fought against, very probably to my own detriment. So my top tip and piece of advice is do what feels right for you. You must passionately believe in your work. People have said to me for years “you’re not still making stuff are you? Why aren’t you getting it made overseas?”. I passionately believe in British manufacturing. I passionately believe in helping others and trying to do things the “right” way, which is why we work with mental health charities to make some of our products. If I listened to logic we would have stopped our cat line years ago as it doesn’t sell as well as the dogs, but I know the cats who have our beds love them. So I’m not going to stop! Sending all of our scraps to schools costs us more money than sending our waste to landfill, but we are helping as many schools as we can amidst crushing budget cuts. This is terrible business advice without a doubt as it cuts into profits, but knowing that we are running our business in a better way brings me a lot of joy. So do what you believe in and follow your heart. And if desk jobs scare you, go and track down magical beasts. Or at least make collars for them 😉

#marchmeetthemaker | Day 22 | Proud Of:
The collection that I design and make for Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle & The Palace of Holyroodhouse. It doesn’t have my name on it anywhere as it was created for The Royal Collection Trust and is sold exclusively in the palace shops and on their website, but every year I take one of my daughters to go on the tour of the Buckingham Palace State Rooms & when we get to the shop we stand by my collars and bandanas, leads and squeaky bones, blankets and key tags, and we giggle and beam with pride. Then we go and sit in the beautiful palace gardens and eat delicious ice cream and take it all in, feeling overwhelming gratitude and thanks for this wonderful opportunity.
.
There are lots of lovely stories behind this range:
- The tartan used in the range is the same tartan that The Queen wears when she is at Balmoral and is woven by Royal Warrant Holders.
- I emboss each label by hand in Hackney, London.
- Part of the range is made in conjunction with an East London project supporting NHS mental health patients, teaching sewing skills and building community.
- I sampled this range on and off for over 7 years - that’s how long it can take to get something exactly right!
.
Also... I’ve finally caught up with this @joannehawker challenge! Hooray!

#marchmeetthemaker Day 19 | Dream Collaboration:
I’m looking back and forwards with this challenge by @joannehawker Back first... many many moons ago we made this awesome and MASSIVE Dog Doza bed for Bonio / @nestle @purinauki as the top prize on their back of packet competition - I really loved all the crazy detail I could go into, like hand embroidering Bonio onto the bone in the logo. .
I’ve been so lucky in the people I have got to collaborate with so far... The Royal Academy of Arts on both the Sensation exhibition in 2000 and creating a collection based on Craigie Aitchison’s paintings of his Bedlingtons. With companies like @smallbone.devizes @williamyeoward @henryholland @aveda  @virginemi @pdsa_shop @thepalmdog @hollyandlil @harrods @royalacademyarts @imperialwarmuseums 
My current collaboration with @royalcollectiontrust I am saving up for Day 22 | Proud Of!
.
Looking forward... who would I love to collaborate with in the future??? A dream collaboration would be with @battersea to help raise funds for the amazing work they do, and @nationaltrust celebrating the beautiful spaces they protect around the UK.

#marchmeetthemaker | Day 17 & 20 catch up | What I’m Working On & Design Process:
This is a little video of what I am working on - a new textile to celebrate our 20th year in business. It is also a pretty good example of how I work & my design process:
1. Inspiration hits, normally on a dog walk or out running.
2. Creative madness takes over and I plough straight in. 
In this case I decided we needed to screen print a celebratory textile for our dog beds, as our very first dog beds were screen printed with the help of my lovely friend @starkeyslane. So I went out and bought a “screen print starter pack”, drew what was in my head in pencil onto the screen and then hand painted in the block ink and started to print!
3. Next up: Make a massive mess - pull out every fabric roll and bit of leather that we have and start madly making - cutting, sewing, sticking, starting again... riding the wave of inspiration to wherever it takes me.
It’s been like this since I got kicked out of Art GCSE for not being able to make a plan before diving right in.
Most of the time I design with scissors. If I’m lucky I’ll have a little sketch to (try &) keep things focused, but I’m much better with a pair of scissors than a pencil - probably a kick back from my handmade greeting card days.
