Hiro + Wolf was founded by Accessories designer Amy Fleuriot-Reade and animal lover Bee Friedmann in 2010 before launching their first collection of colourful pet accessories in 2013. Fabrics for Hiro + Wolf’s colourful collection of pet accessories are either designed in-house and hand illustrated by Amy before being printed in the U.K. or ethically sourced by Bee during her adventures around her home continent, Africa. Some of their colourful original collections include designs inspired by The Wizard of Oz and New York, as well as a collaborative collection with us here at Artisans & Adventurers inspired by African prints.
Designed and sampled in their Margate workshop under the watchful eyes of the in-house hounds, all Hiro + Wolf leads, collars and other accessories are then skilfully stitched and trimmed with luxury vegetable tan leathers by Jayne in Staffordshire. Jayne was born into the pet accessory business, learning her craft from the ground up at her parents factory. Jayne joined Hiro + Wolf in 2015 and works closely on product development with Amy and Bee. She manufactures all of their pet accessories from the workshop her Dad built for her in her back garden.
Now an internationally recognised brand, Hiro + Wolf collections are sold in stores worldwide. Hiro + Wolf have achieved significant media attention with features in national publications including Elle Decoration, Living etc. and GQ Magazine.
