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 combine my favourite things into our new Mount Kobe range of fine art prints and travel guide for dogs! Actually, Mount Kobe only includes most of my favourite things. I couldn’t find a way to incorporate the eating snacks part. But it does include something more important, which is the same spirit of compassion and generosity that makes a Kotes by Kobe brand. A portion of Mount Kobe sales is donated to help our mountains community recover from the last bushfire season.
