Just For You

Our Story

We believe there is a better way to make pet gear. One where the supply chain supports fellow small/ethical businesses and our local communities.

Every single one of our products is developed, designed, hand-cut and made from scratch in our sunny little studio by me, Rebecca – with supervision from my cat & dog 'Office Managers' of course.

Staying Small

All of our materials are sourced from fellow small businesses and ethical manufacturers in North America. (Read more about our Signature Materials here). This directly benefits our community and keeps our carbon footprint lower.

Then, all of our products are made in-house in our sunny little studio in the USA – a warm & creative environment where we make your gear with an attention to detail and quality that factory production can't replicate.

Recycle & Rewear

All of our packaging is curbside recyclable and contains no plastic. Our fabrics are printed on sustainably sourced natural fabrics with eco-friendly water-based inks and we repurpose most of our scraps (Like our 3-Piece Bows).

In the rare cases that we do chose manufactured materials, it was because they out-performed a natural material and are meant to last a lifetime with our Repair / Recycle program.

Giving Back

With every order placed, we donate the proceeds to small rescue organizations where they'll make the biggest impact.

We've provided hundreds of meals and much-needed supplies for pets in need at organizations like the MD SPCA, Forgotten Cats, BARCS, and more – thanks to your orders!

About Me

Folktails is inspired by my love of design – and a frustration with unsustainable manufacturing practices.

That's why I took two years to develop Folktails – so I could make sustainable pet gear for people who care.

Brand Goals

We’re style conscious (OK, our pets are dressed better than us), but also concerned about our planet, and know it’s vital to support local manufacturing and small businesses.

This is a fashion brand that makes effortlessly chic pet accessories you can mix n’ match for seasons to come.

Slow Down with Us

'Slow fashion' has grown in human apparel, but less so in the pet industry. Eco materials aren't enough when the manufacturing process exploits people. Our transparent process supports the small business & pet lover communities.

We always do the best we can.
