Celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2015.
In Spring 2002, two apparently identical, fluffy, black puppies met on Primrose Hill and began to play. Holly, (the collie cross) and Lil, (the flatcoat retriever) joined forces for many long walks whilst their owners, discussed life and other stuff – such as why you could never buy really wonderful dog collars? And Holly&Lil was born
Webshop opened in 2005 – www.hollyandlil.co.uk.
Shop, 103 Bermondsey Street opened In 2007. It has been a great success and has been included in Vogues secret Diary, Time Outs top 100 and won the Kennel Clubs award ‘Open for Dogs Somewhere on the high street’
Few changes over the years – Lily’s owner, Sarah, left in 2010 and Lily sadly died a year later. But Elaine and Holly are still fit as fleas and the company staff are well loved by our clients; (who we call our Pack Members).
Holly&Lil became a Ltd company in 2012 – Holly&Lil The Collar Makers Ltd, We aim to continue proudly as a small, British craft company making a bespoke luxury product and following in the long tradition of English leatherwork. With plans to expand this year….
Holly&Lil is a favourite with many celebs (and their dogs) from Gok Wan to Mickey Rourke, (he now buys online since Jonathan Ross gave him 5 on his show years ago). We are thankful for their support.
But for H&L it’s all about the dogs….We create in every size, adapting our designs to tailor-make them for the tiniest and giant breeds alike. Today our handmade collars are worn by dogs and cats all over the world, from Brighton to Bangkok and from Moscow to Tokyo.
Celebrations this year include launch of new collections inspired by a few Client bespoke creations. The first two will be shown at Crufts this Year – Flower Garden dog collar and Leopard Rose Dog Collars. http://www.hollyandlil.co.uk/flower-garden-dog-collar-exclusive-1752-p.asp
