Wondercoat Joins the Twinkle of Christmas Fair 2023 in Collaboration with Mews

Wondercoat, an exciting British  brand specialising in performance harnesses, harness-coats, and accessories for small dogs and their owners, is delighted to announce participation in the Twinkle of Christmas Fair 2023, a magical festive shopping experience for all at the Chelsea Design Center, London. 

Founded in 2020 by designer Michela Hayes-Griffin, Wondercoat has carved a unique niche in the dog industry with their handcrafted performance garments.

The brand’s journey began with a clear vision: To create properly fitting, practical solutions that cater to the specific needs of small breeds.

“A well-fitting harness is perhaps the most important purchase you can make for your dog, and not all dog harnesses are created equal,” explains Michela Hayes-Griffin. “Fit and comfort are critical  and we have spent over 4 years developing our patterns and construction techniques to specifically address the needs of small breeds . We are incredibly passionate about the quality, practicality, and sustainability of our products.”

For the Twinkle of Christmas Fair 2023, Wondercoat and Mews are joining together to provide visitors with a unique and delightful shopping experience. The two brands will be collaborating to showcase an array of innovative and luxurious dog products. It is a partnership that combines the love dogs and British craftsmanship to offer visitors a one-of-a-kind shopping experience.

In this remarkable collaboration, Wondercoat and Mews have meticulously handcrafted a limited-edition opulent Sheepskin harness as a functional addition to the Mews beautifully crafted dog carriers and sheepskins bags – products born from an unwavering commitment to British luxury and lavishness that both brands proudly uphold. This exquisite harness guarantees not only a flawless fit but also the epitome of plush warmth and indulgence throughout the winter season.

What sets Wondercoat apart is its commitment to sustainability. The company sources small-batch, premium-grade, performance fabrics and uses end-of-line materials wherever possible. Each garment is meticulously handcrafted in small batches, aimed at minimising the environmental impact and fighting the issue of fast fashion in the pet industry. Wondercoat garments are designed to be repairable and re-wearable, breathing new life into pre-loved items, thus contributing to a solution in the industry’s sustainability challenges.

The founder and designer, Michela Hayes-Griffin, expresses her passion for the brand by saying, “Wondercoat has never just been about dog coats for me. It’s a way for me to carve out a unique place for myself, bringing together the elements of everything I love and feel passionate about: dogs, family, creativity, and sustainability. But most importantly, the opportunity to build an exciting business around a wonderful community of dog lovers, passionate about their dogs.”
