A pet firm based near Milton Keynes, which won Best New Business at the PIF Awards, plans to increase production of its popular range of bag accessories.
Barking Bags is the brainchild of Debbie Greaves and her partner Rob Angell, who were inspired by the need to find a bag that would carry all the paraphernalia needed when out on a walk with their dog Maisie.
Due to increasing demand the company now intends to introduce a new range of bum bags.
The company’s bags are fast becoming an essential companion for dog walkers. Their fashionable and multifunctional design allows the wearer the flexibility to use them cross body or as a bum bag, helping dog walkers to carry everything they need without compromising on style. They are weatherproof and suitable for any climate or environment.
Debbie said: “We have a range of high quality, water resistant, unisex fabrics and also high end luxury leather bags to choose from, but in response to customer demand, we also produce a vegan friendly range as well. These allow you to carry all the essentials you need.”
Barking Bags was also nominated in two other categories at the PIF Awards and were finalists in three categories at the PetQuip Awards.
The bags are currently made by artisans in India and are packaged in the UK at MK SNAP – a local charity working with adults with learning difficulties.
