Have you ever wanted to dress your dog up but didn't think a pink tutu was his style? Meet Growler Goods, an LA-based, eco-friendly lifestyle brand created for dogs and their owners that features rugged, outdoor designs and products that include everything from a pet bandana and harness to their bestselling Saguaro Tipis ($110) and Ocotillo Ponchos ($75).
Founders Matt Graber and Heather Roma created the brand as a way to bring man's best friend back to its roots in a den environment, hence the tipi, while maintaining Cali's boho-chic style. As dog lovers themselves, one of the main motivations in their venture is to help animals in need, which is why a percentage of the proceeds go towards sponsoring dogs through different charities.
On the earth conscious front, Growler Goods products are nearly completely free of petroleum-based synthetic materials (less than 1%) and animal products. Their fabrics are also constructed of 100% cotton, making them sustainable, renewable and recyclable. Nab key pieces at Free People here or shop the entire selection here.
