Bespoke and Designer Pet Beds and Pet Accessories - Pink Whiskers

Pink Whiskers

Pink Whiskers is a British Pet Furniture Business that was founded by Kate May in Lancashire.  Kate designs, builds and upholsters furniture for all sizes of dog, using only the finest quality of materials. This passion started when Kate made her cat Daisy a Porter chair. That proved to be the start of her creative inspiration as her next product was a Button Basket style Dog bed for a dog that Kate didn’t have! Pet beds galore is Pink Whiskers! 

In 2003 Kate started an Advanced Level Furniture Production course at Burnley College. Her tutors were so impressed with her skills and talent that they nominated her for a City & Guilds Medal of Excellence award. Kate went on to win the award for her designer approach to creating  beautiful  furniture for pets.

This encouraged Kate to set up Pink Whiskers. The quirky name for the business was chosen after Kate sat down at the computer and  wrote 100 words relating to her brand new business and what it meant to her. From there Kate chose Pink first, as she thought it was feminine and would appeal to women and because the only pet Kate had at the time was a cat called Daisy,  so she chose the second word, Whiskers.

As Kate didn’t have a pet Dog she couldn’t test out her designs and products to know if dogs would like a bed made from different materials and if they would even use them.  With this in mind, Kate started her search for a dog and came across Re-Homing Centres. A skinny Lurcher, who was later called Spuddy, stole her heart. Kate decided Spuddy needed a friend so rescued another Lurcher and then another 3 legged Lurcher after that. Kate’s love for rescue animals grew and she went on to  home a mini Dachshund and later a Horse called Queenie. Rescuing pets became another of Kate’s passions and now support she home rescue centres whenever she can.

It is important to Kate to only use high quality materials and fabrics when creating any of her pet beds and products and she chooses to work with natural fibres, such as leather and wool as much as possible. This ensures that the pet beds she personally makes, are hard wearing but are also warm for winter and cool for summer. Kate also offers the option for her pet beds to be made from designer fabrics, using quality leathers and designer fabrics popular with pet owners. Not wanting to waste any material, Kate uses her leftovers to make beautiful handmade collars, coats and accessories for pets, as well as pet feeders which can be painted to match your kitchen.

Kate opens her workshop doors to anyone who wishes to take a look at her work in her showroom and is open 7 days a week. This means that any pet owner who isn’t sure if their dog or cat would use their new bed, she encourages 'try before you buy' for pets, just like any bed showrooms that humans visit, before buying a bed themselves. We think this is a fab idea and Kate’s showroom of pet beds and accessories is above her workshop and can be found here too www.bashallbarn.co.uk.

Kate shared her story with us here.
