Hugo & Otto luxury dog beds and bedding was founded and created by certificated Interior Designer Caroline Bate in 2014 alumni of the prestigious KLC School Of Design, Chelsea 2003/4. During the global pandemic created and launched baby sister brand Dog Company www.dogco.uk offering outstanding robust and practical dog beds and bedding to suit every pocket.
Hugo & Otto started out with a beautiful bricks and mortar store in Tarporley, Cheshire offering multi award winning luxury dog beds and dog products from Germany and USA with The Letto Day Bed awarded Red Dot, Best Product Design 2015 setting the bar high against the cheap mass imported dog beds and the existing Kitsch designs. The demise of the high street and falling value of the British Pound against the Euro during Brexit forced Caroline to re-structure her business model and invest in British manufacturing to create their first own label British made luxury dog beds. The first collections saw a collaboration with world renowned British fabrics makers with outstanding heritage from the fine British wools of Abraham Moon, Ian Mankin Organic Linens and cotton mixes and Romo Fabrics.
