Gifts for dog people to set tails wagging

 In News
Hello, dog people!

I’m Marta Clayton and I set up Walter & Florence to create British-made gifts for dog people. I’m fanatical about dogs, and gifts for the home that make a splash. Our products include fine bone china mugs, stylish tea towels, luxurious cushions and a range of stationery.

Our collections feature sweet pug and dachshund designs – two of my favourite breeds. We’ve started small but plan to include more breeds as we go along.

Lazy Days fine bone china mug with pug design by Walter & Florence who create British-made gifts for dog loversI’m a pug owner myself and have a thing for 1950s fashion illustrations, so our designs combine a love of dogs with the chic of haute couture ink and watercolour sketches. This makes every product a little bit different and something you’ll hopefully want to keep a long time.


British-made gifts for dog people

All our gifts are made in England by small, privately-owned companies. Local manufacture is kinder to the environment and helps small businesses to thrive. For example, our fine bone china mugs are manufactured in Stoke-on-Trent, home to the UK’s ceramic industry.
Our cushion covers and tea towels are made in Lincolnshire and our cushion pads hail from Lancashire.


Interesting facts

  It’s little details that make our products special. Our mugs are silk screen printed and decorated by hand before being fired in the kiln. The quills have been removed from our duck feather cushions because it makes them extra plump and soft.

  I named the business after my two pugs, Walter and Florence. Last year, Cedric, an apricot pug, joined the family so now we officially have a pug grumble.

  I love to get my pugs a mention on national radio. So, they’ve had numerous shout-outs, including dedications from both Jo Whiley and Claudia Winkleman on BBC Radio 2.

Walter & Florence
This blog is all about pugs, possibly the most interesting subject there is. Here our two pugs-in-chief, Walter and Florence, keep you posted on life in the retail fast lane and how they unwind when they’re not busy wrapping gifts and modelling for photo shoots.
