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 was how I started out, but I’ve since branched out into the literary space! Our Mount Kobe range features a travel guide to the Blue Mountains for dogs and other merch highlighting our beautiful Blue Mountains home, including an apparel range and custom jigsaw puzzle range. Our Kobe’s Kitchen range features my latest book, Boozehounds and Kobernet: Dog-friendly wineries of Australia, plus a cookbook of my favourite recipes, fun kitchen merch and my own special dog beer. You can find Kobe Island, my first children’s book in the Kobes For Kids section.
