This is our story.
Hello! And welcome. My name is Louise and I am the owner of Premium Paws UK.
Since I was young I have always loved everything creative. I remember one time my parents took me to Toys R Us for my birthday and said I could get anything I wanted, and I came out with a little craft kit...
But on the flip side, a huge part of my life has always been animals. My family has always kept animals. From dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, sheep, horses and even a tortoise. When I left school I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to do, but when I had a good think about it, animals were my true passion, so I went to an animal college! I thoroughly enjoyed the course but missed my creative side. So I decided to try something new, and that something was sewing. I wasn't sure what I wanted to make, but I thought, I love animals, what can I make for my pets? So I did some research. I knew my grandad was good at sewing already so I got some scrap fabric and up-cycled it into my very first pet bandana and bow, with his help.
I have to admit, they weren't great... haha! But i really enjoyed making them. Sewing was an escape which I really enjoyed. Seeing the adorable items I had created gave a sense of pride. I purchased my first sewing machine using all my money I had saved, as well as some cheap fabric, and just practiced, making my pets a HUGE accessory wardrobe.
I always loved to accessorise and match with my pets, but I found bandanas and other items from big name stores just weren't up to the quality I needed for my pet to wear these long term. After making myself a huge collection of my own, I thought, why not sell these? I knew from use of them, that my accessories were of high quality for a pet to wear, and they could withstand the play time and dirt my pets put them through, so you and your pets deserve that same quality. So I set up my shop, and my Instagram, and it went from there. I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far, and I'm so grateful for everyone to be on this journey with me whilst I make you and your pets the most stylish pair in town!
