Furry, fun, fine fashion for your pooch is what has been named product of the week this week.
NICE DIGS exhibited for the first time at Life Instyle Melbourne 2017 and showcased an incredible range of vegetable tanned leather accessories all handmade at their Dandenong Ranges studio.
It was a hard task trying to select just one product out of the range however we couldn’t go past the Tiggy collar which is a hand painted, leather number that is very chic for the fashion-forward pups out there.
Georgia is the founder and director of NICE DIGS, a dog obsessed fashion and textile designer from Melbourne, Australia.
After adopting a rescue dog, she struggled to find products that fit with their personal aesthetic and suited the home. With this in mind, she developed a collection of beds and throws that were fun and functional with a contemporary aesthetic. Coming from a textile design background, Georgia naturally gravitates toward strong patterns, colour & repetition.
In the lead up to their first design market, NICE DIGS wanted to create a range of accessories that had a strong, graphic impact & would compliment their digitally printed bedding range. The painted accessories were an overwhelming success and they have never looked back!
The collars and leashes are hand painted and studded in the NICE DIGS studio in the Dandenong Ranges using high quality Australian regulated vegetable tanned leather. This leather is tanned naturally without chemicals using tannins found in different vegetable matter, such as tree bark, wood & leaves. It’s a very strong and durable leather and the way the colour naturally darkens and patinas over time, developing into a beautiful caramel colour with age is to die for!
The Tiggy collar is definitely for the ultra-cool pup. Handcrafted using painted vegetable-tanned leather, finished with gold hardware and the very iconic NICE DIGS dog charm. Fusing durability and contemporary design, the Tiggy collar matches your personal aesthetic and your pooch’s personality seamlessly.
