Who we are

Velvet Hippo is a pet accessories brand that inspires pet owners to express their personal style in the spaces and environments they share with their furry ones. Based in Brooklyn, Velvet Hippo is committed to creating quality products, and dedicated to sustainable design and production.


It began with love

It started with Jason & Shalina's connection to their two beloved pit mixes Rasta & Lola, and wanting to make them a larger part of their everyday lives. Inspired by their pups' loyal and tenacious personalities, the couple wanted to create dog accessories and furniture that fit aesthetically and functionally into their home and lifestyles. Everything else in their home was consideredwhy not accessories for furry companions.

Made to last

Velvet Hippo is dedicated to the integrity of our pets, the quality of the products we produce, and a commitment to sustainability in manufacturing. We’re not here to add more stuff to the planet and believe the best way to do this is making products that outlast the rest. We believe in embracing simplicity and minimalism, and stand behind our designs that enrich the interactions, environments, and memories we share with our dogs.
