PRETÀPAWTER founder, Lyn Patmore was born on the lovely South Coast of England and despite moving around the UK during her career, she couldn't resist the allure of her home town of Bournemouth, where she is lucky enough to live again now.
It was whilst walking along Dorset's glorious coastline, observing dog walkers grappling with their necessary paraphenalia, from poop bags to mobile phones and dog treats to keys, that inspired Lyn to develop the concept of a genius dog bag. It seemed apparent that there was a gap in the market for a new generation of dog bag that could cater for all dog walkers needs, whilst at the same time adding to their style credentials.
With that seed sown, Lyn conducted formal market research among dog walkers about their dog walking 'pet hates'. She then used their unanimous wish list to design and create her unique, uber-clever and unisex bags that put the va-va voom back into the humble dog walk.
An irresistible fusion of fashion and practicality
Using her passion for fashion and her love of dogs, Lyn has created a hard-to-resist range of bags that literally tick all the necessary boxes when it comes to walking a dog. Not only do they pack a punch visually, these fashion-forward bags are waterproof, have a wipeable treat pocket, a mini torch and a shoulder strap that doubles as an emergency lead, as well as numerous little compartments to keep all your necessaries separate and a handy clip to attach keys or a full poop bag to.
The beautiful handmade bags are now available in an ever expanding range of fabulous colours, cleverly split up into five eclectic collections that tie into the nations modern walking habits. The 'Coastal', 'Country', 'Urban', 'Fashionista' and 'Blighty' collections showcase a kaleidoscope of super stylish and fun eye popping colours, all chosen to cater for each and every dog walker, whatever their style.
What's more, because Lyn makes the bags herself, certain aspects of them (from the size, the fabric colour, the zip colour and the inside lining colour and pattern) can be customised to reflect a customers unique personality. This 'bespoke' service takes the bags to another level entirely, allowing her discerning buyers the flexibility to truly show off their own psyche.
