ABOUT 2.8

Our pups bring us together. At the park, out and about in the city, when we travel around the world.
2.8 design for dogs was born out of love for our furry friends.
Anna, professional photographer and devoted dog-lover, was looking for the right accessories to match her home interiors, as well as her stylish dogs, Quintale and Hermione.
Margherita, an experienced product developer, was always exploring new ways to put her vast knowledge of textiles and manufacturing processes to use. Along with her inseparable Fox Terrier Olivia, she started working on the right material.
Together they created a line of products for dogs that fits every interior harmoniously: beautiful objects that furnish and enhance the style of any kind of indoor spaces.
Their mutual creativity and fondness for high-quality design became the foundations of 2.8 design for dogs.

HANDMADE IN ITALY

When you’re inspired by two of the most beautiful places in the world, it’s difficult to go wrong.
The pulsating heart of 2.8 design for dogs is in Tuscany: this captivating land - vibrant with spirit, art and history – possesses an outstanding legacy of handmade manufacturing and craftsmanship. It was only natural to choose it as the centre of our production department.
2.8’s head, however, is in Venice: open-mindedness and entrepreneurial spirit are the city’s trademarks. Merchants and travellers have been inspired by Venice’s spirit for centuries, and the creators of 2.8 design for dogs have followed in their footsteps.
We believe Made in Italy to be far more than just a label. It’s an idea of beauty, elegance, craftsmanship and quality.
Here at 2.8 design for dogs, Made in Italy is a lifestyle and a choice.
