The idea behind St Argo, came about when we first moved to South Yarra, Melbourne. As a young couple, walking along the leafy paths of Fawkner Park - our local dog park, we decided it was time to adopt a fluff ball of our own.
It was essential that we were able to introduce her to our metropolitan lifestyle early on, without jeopardising her health as a young puppy. This led to the conclusion that we needed a dog carrier, but the struggle to find a comfortable bag that did not look cage-like and cold became apparent immediately.
Hence, St Argo was born.
With roots on Argo Street, and a social and environmental conscience on our mind ('Saint' Argo), we have strived to bring functionality, fashionability and sustainability to all products.
All products are crafted with our very own Vegan Leather. With style in mind, we were adamant to create a carrier that could be worn by fashion-conscious individuals and their beautiful companions.
We wanted a comfortable interior that would attract pups, defying the typical impression of a dog carrier. To this end, all carriers are lined with 100% recycled fabric - adding plushness, colour and ventilation.
The inner cushions feature a soothing fur-feel cover, again, pooch comfort is at the forefront.
By finding the gap in the market for luxe, affordable doggy carriers, we also discovered we couldn't find classic, minimalistic collars and leashes for our own pup and the collection grew.
What separates us from other brands, is, we would say, the emphasis we place on bringing out collections that are equally as wearable for a pooch as accessorise-able as they are for you! Colours, textures and solid patterns are important to us, as we create styles that suit your wardrobe, whilst being comfortable for your pup and designed with durability in mind.
