I’m Kobe, a Pyrenean Mountain Dog living in the Blue Mountains in Australia. I started Kotes by Kobe because I wanted to use my spare floof to keep other pups warm. All of our clothing and accessories for dogs are made from recycled dog fur, which is processed into a bespoke range of yarns and linings before it gets a new life keeping another dog warm. We even have some matching garments for humans!

Keeping dogs warm is my day job, but in my spare time I enjoy hiking in the mountains, landscape photography, playing with words and eating snacks. So, I decided to parlay my favourite activities into two separate arms of our business! Our Mount Kobe range features a travel guide to the Blue Mountains for dogs and other merch highlighting our beautiful Blue Mountains home. Our new Kobe’s Kitchen range includes a cookbook of my favourite recipes and my own special dog beer!
