Y’all already know! It’s BANDANA time!!!!! Okay, to say that I love Rag + Hound is a total understatement. I am completely and utterly obsessed with them! They are giving me all the puppy bandana feels, and not to mention that they also have so much more than just bandanas!
We love these chic bandanas that Pharrell, Rumba and Rosie love to rock in Central Park and as we walk down the streets of Brooklyn! I love how the mix of simple and chic in all of the bandana, and thickness and amazing quality of the materials that they have to offer. We asked this amazing company a few questions to get a little more deeper in their story!
When was Rag & Hound founded?
RH started in the fall of 2016, our first birthday is actually coming up in October! Hard to believe it’s been a year already, time flies when you’re having fun!
What is Rag + Hound’s mission?
The whole goal is create bandanas people love and dogs love to wear, but also to give back to the community.
What makes Rag + Hound unique?
Probably the most unique aspect is that RH is a one-woman show. I (Caitlin) started RH last year because I had a “little” extra time on my hands, but I never imagined RH would grow so much in 1 year! Running RH includes everything from making bandanas and shipping orders, to creating the website, taking product photos and managing social media — somehow I manage this in addition to having a full-time business career and staying active with my German Shepherd, Guinness (RH’s honorary CEO). Fun fact, Guinness was a rescue himself (he was a stray).
What organizations has Rag + Hound supported?
$1 is donated from every bandana sold. The majority of RH’s donations go to Homeward Pets, which is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter serving the greater Seattle area. RH also doubled donations per bandana for a period to raise funds for rescue organizations during Hurricane Harvey.
What future goals is Rag + Hound working towards?
One of the current goals is expanding to retail stores! In fact there are several shops we are talking with that will make this goal a reality very soon!
What are Rag + Hound’s achievements?
RH was a Guardian Angel Kennel Sponsor at Homeward Pet for the first half of 2017. It was such an honor! Another achievement has been shipping our products to over 20 countries across the world.
