Bauhound is a new startup dog apparel company releasing their fashionable and oh-so-soft doggy sweaters…just in time for those frosty days ahead!  Founded by graphic and doggy apparel designer Zhou Jixuan (who goes by ‘Xuan’), Bauhound wants to make their edgy and trendy sweaters a must-have on your holiday shopping lists!

Inspired by Xuan’s adorable pooch Nugget, Bauhound is running a Kickstarter campaign for their first batch of sweaters and you can get the first peek.  The soft and luxurious sweaters are made of 100% high-quality Alpaca wool, which is what makes them soft, like cashmere. Unlike cashmere, though, Alpaca wool is much more sustainable (good for pup, good for planet!) and is warmer than sheep’s wool–so your furry friend will not ever be frigid when wearing one!!

And while the sweaters function and on-fleek fashion style are what all the neighborhood dogs will be raving about, we love that Bauhound provides jobs for over 300 women in Bolivia–with fair pay business practices–and ensuring change not only in your dog’s closet, but in other countries as well.  Who can’t love that?
