Copy of About Us
Pupakiotti is a dog brand that combines style and comfort. Quality products with a functional design, made with care in Italy for the comfort of the dog and those accompanying him. Harnesses, collars, leashes, genuine leather carrier bags, clothing and accessories for dogs of all breeds from 1 to 16 kg, handcrafted with passion, care and strong dedication to quality.
WHO WE ARE
The Pupakiotti-branded project was founded by the spouses Elena and Sergio Montagna who, after a 20-year career in the fashion industry, have identified leather leashes and dog clothing as two new areas of work in which to pour creativity, knowledge and insights.
“We have worked in the fashion world for many years and we still design and produce high-end leather goods. The idea of transferring this know-how to the pet world was born in 2015 and became concrete a couple of years later. It all started from a need: while looking for clothing and leashes for our dogs, we realized that something in line with our expectations was missing on the market. We wanted to offer something absolutely original, functional and aesthetically valid.”
We design and handcraft quality products for dogs in Italy. We take care of research, design and every detail of the product, in order to ensure maximum comfort for the dog and those accompanying him.
The naming of the Pupakiotti brand is a fantasy name, a pet name for pupo , which has always been used to call our dogs. Hence a name that expresses passion and emotion for all four-legged friends.
Pupakiotti's mission is to fully meet the needs of those looking for products for dogs of the best quality, beautiful and functional.
All models are conceived and created by Sergio and Elena and many of these have a registered design. Much attention is given to the originality of each item.
The Pupakiotti ergonomic leather harness was conceived in several months of tests and optimizations, useful for achieving a safe and comfortable fit in the different sizes, dog breeds and at the same time practical use. We invented from scratch a new model of harness, original and different from any other on the market today and we deposited it to protect our creativity. To better identify it we have called it Bustier Harness, given the specific bustier shape. When the customer asks us if the Pupakiotti bib is scapular, H, X, Y or cross, we answer – a bustier.
Pupakiotti clothing for dogs are made with sartorial techniques and handcrafted with lots of love entirely in Italy.
The style, modeling and prototyping are supervised personally by Elena Montagna, who covers the role of designer and model maker of the brand.
The Pupakiotti collections are distinguished by the high quality of the fabrics and materials used, always carefully selected from the best Italian producers, as well as by the attention to the wearability and modeling of the garments by size and breed.
Our goal is to create products capable of responding to the needs that each specific breed may present.
For example, we have developed tailored clothing lines dedicated to bulldogs and dachshunds.
« When we design a product we always have in mind the needs of the public, especially the female one,
endowed with greater taste, and is often attentive to fashion and design trends.
For us, the points of reference are always comfort for the dog and design,
functionality and style for women. For example, in the creation of carrier bags, from the outset the basic model was that of a women's bag,
which we have re-adapted for the comfort of the dog. The Pupakiotti bag collection stands out for its extreme lightness, quality, design and resistance».
THE NEED OF CONSUMERS AND OUR ANSWER
From our point of view, in the leash and accessory market, there is a strong need for novelty, which sometimes remains unexpressed and yet never fails. There are many dog owners who are dissatisfied with the offer currently available on the market, but they are not always aware of it, until they come across different products, truly higher quality, more beautiful and functional. With Pupakiotti we want to give an answer to this need, we create products not only for dogs, but for pet owners and we consider our items as a further complement for them.
The Bauttega in Milan is the meeting place where, in addition to selling to the public, we show the first samples or previews of the materials and colors chosen for the new collections.
In this place we receive feedback from our most loyal customers and ideas to optimize any details and fit.
In our concept dog owners can participate in the creative process and partly inspire and stimulate it.
La Bauttega is therefore the connection between the need of the market and the creative office.
