Blueberry Fogle & Pole Vintage Collection Dog Bed
Part of our collaboration with Ben Fogle, this dog bed is truly beautiful. Hand made from original pre-loved 1930’s Antique Welsh Blankets sourced in Carmarthenshire, Wales. Each bed is truly unique – literally no two beds are the same.
We fill our Fogle & Pole Vintage Collection Dog Beds with 2 separate super squidgy 15 tog spiral fibre inners that are exclusively made (in the UK) for us. Machine washable at 30C and guaranteed not to go lumpy, the inners can also be tumble dried. But we don’t recommend this for environmental reasons. Simply hang them out after washing and they will dry super fast. The inners will wash and wash and wash – a product with true built in longevity.
As for the covers, we wash these on a gentle wool wash. Give them a good hoover first to remove any excess fur and then pop them in the machine. The blankets are 100% wool, but most, if not all shrinking will have already happened via their previous owners. But please be mindful of not putting them on a hot wash!
The blankets that we make these beds out of have seen a lot of love over the years, which is what goes into making them so wonderful. Occasionally we find little holes in the original blanket and we patch these up with an elastaplast made from sewn on velvet ribbon.
The beds do up with a strong YKK zip. A debossed leather tag stamped with Handmade in Suffolk finishes each bed. Look a little closer and you will see the initials of the maker on the reverse of the tag too. You can then track these initials back to see which member of our team made your bed for you. These truly are 100% hand made in the UK and we are accountable to that.
We have called this bed the Blueberry Vintage Dog Bed, from the Fogle & Pole Collection.
