Hello, dog lovers!

I’m Marta Clayton, owner of Walter & Florence, and this is our story. I’m fanatical about dogs, and gifts for the home that make a splash. So, I set up Walter & Florence to create British-made gifts and homeware for dog lovers.

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.

A lot of thought goes into each product. I believe in:

Our design inspiration

I’m a pug owner 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.

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.

Interesting facts about us

  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.
