A love of dogs combined with a commitment to authentic, Italian-made products, inspired the inception of the pet boutique, Meomari. Breaking new ground in the world of dog accessories, the upscale brand operates around the core tenets of luxury, artistry and elegance. Also placing an emphasis on Italian heritage and expert hand craftsmanship, its stylish wearables are made to last a lifetime, developing a graceful patina as they age. And for those seeking to give their pooch a tasty treat, there’s a selection of canine patisserie too.
Flawless design, high-quality materials and a tactile soft touch provide a real sense of luxury to the brand’s items. But they’re made to be worn, not just admired. Resilient cow leather is used to ensure high-grade durability that withstands the inevitable daily wear and tear, yet provides an uber-comfy buttery feel for your pup. The Da Piacenza range features full-grain blemish-free leather, with the Fracci collar incorporating lightweight webbing in a soft brass colour that complements its hardware. The Taglioni also features this complimentary hue, in the collar’s leather inner, creating a subtle two-tone effect.
As it’s so important that collar and leash hardware is strong and robust, 100% brass has been used to create structural integrity as well as a warm sunset glow. This is then covered with an extra tough coating to prolong its life and display its shine. As this metal is resistant to damp conditions and rust, it’s a great choice if your dog loves to take a dip, or roam the dew-filled fields too. Brass also has antibacterial properties, making it a cleaner and safer choice for responsible pet owners.
Exceptional design is at the heart of the range. The edit includes practical pet supplies like collars, leashes and training leads, bold raincoats and a cosy, fashionable, waterproof puffer jacket, The Cecchetti. But it also incorporates stunning decorative pieces. Necklaces can be purchased containing gems such as round cut strass stones, pearls and deep black rhinestones. While these jewels have a rare, delicate appearance, pet owners can rest assured they’re built with the most active pooches in mind, reinforced with wire for their safety.
The range doesn’t end with wearables either — edibles have been incorporated too. These are suitable dog-friendly gifts, ideal to celebrate the arrival of a new four-legged family member, or as a birthday gift for that extra special pooch deserving a pamper. Buy Bellini & Cannoli (a Venetian cocktail accompanied by a traditional Sicilian dessert), or Prosecco & Stelle Chioc (a still apple-based version of the human fizz, served with delectable biscuits). The team worked alongside a veterinarian nutritionist to produce these beautiful presented high-end treats that are made in the town of Zocca di Modena, Tuscany.
The brand’s accessories are designed to grow in character as they age — as does your pet! Pups find the carefully sized collars to be extremely comfortable, as well as effortlessly chic. A size chart ensures you get exactly the right fit (there are six size options), removing any pulling force or stress on the material. Matching leashes come in eye-catching, classy shades of mauve and purple. The designers have also considered seasonality and timelessness in the items’ aesthetics. While entirely modern, they won’t date, or be out of place as the seasons change.
Reflecting the theme of refined elegance, the lines have all been named after famous Italian dance legends. Carolina “Carla” Fracci was a ballet dancer, actress and ballet director — one of the nation’s finest artists of the 20th century. Enrico Cecchetti invented a whole style of ballet, while Domenico da Piacenza was a Renaissance dancing master and Marie Taglioni typified 19th century romantic dance.
The company, founded at the start of 2020 has only recently launched in 2022. The two-year-long preparations meant that the best suppliers could be sourced, the most comprehensive designs created and the most thorough testing procedures implemented could all be perfected to present a beautiful pet accessory collection to its clients.
As an ode to its supplier’s Italian heritage, offering products that are fully authentic and made in Italy. Sharing suppliers with some of the most famous luxury brands in the country, Meomari ensures that its accessories are subject to the same high levels of quality as these renowned fashion houses. This is linked to a strong philanthropic ethos too, with the company contributing both time and resources to charities working to improve canine welfare.
Emulating the long tradition of fine Italian handcraftsmanship, Meomari has introduced this internationally renowned level of human luxury to the pet market. Uncompromising on quality and incorporating ethical manufacturing processes as well as sustainable practices, it challenges many customers’ pre-conceptions of canine products.
Products can be purchased and shipped internationally, via Meomari’s online boutique. Items come elegantly presented in their own pouch and gift box. These exquisite accessories are sure to update your dog’s look and provide the ultimate in comfort. And, as they provide longevity are environmentally conscious options that – with the appropriate care – won’t need to be replaced during your pet’s lifetime.
