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