The leather used in designs is sourced from the same tannery as Hermes.
Launched in 2020, Pagerie is the first luxury house dedicated to pet accessories. Its idea was sparked when Mandy Madden Kelley, the brand’s founder, noticed that people dressed “immaculately” had their looks ruined next to their dogs sporting plastic leashes from chain stores.
“Our pets are a reflection and extension of ourselves, and I realized there was such a gap in the market for products that live up to that connection,” Kelley told Dezeen.
According to the American pet brand’s website, their designs are “innovative accessories that will stand the test of time. Imbued with artful craftsmanship, exquisite attention to detail, and conscious functionality.”
To fill the gap in the market, Pagerie was born, and they released Hermes-inspired creations last November.
For example, on how the French house-inspired pieces, the ease of fastening and unfastening a Birkin was Kelley’s benchmark for the Dorro Collar’s adjustability.
Quality over quantity
In Pagerie’s first collection titled Sahara, the most expensive piece retails for $720. The Babbi Harness takes inspiration from a horse’s saddle and comes with an attachable quilt padding for cold climates. The rest of the collection includes a dog leash, a waste bag holder, and a collar.
For the accessories to stand the test of time, materials like leather sourced from the same French tannery of Hermes and steel hardware typically used for building yachts are components in each of Pagerie’s items, Kelley, a former lawyer and now beauty influencer, shares to Deezen that “quality costs more, but it can last a lifetime.”
The founder’s goal is for customers to discover that only one leash or harness for their beloved pup because, according to her, Pagerie creates “high-quality pieces that would never go out of style or need to be disposed of or replaced.”
