FROM THE FOUNDERS
Awoo's story began in 2018 in lower Manhattan.
We met at work and soon bonded over our almost identical black rescue pups, as well as our shared frustration with the lack of stylish and eco-friendly pet products available in the market.
Determined to change this, we set out to modernize pet accessories with a focus on sustainability, function and style. Leveraging our design and manufacturing expertise, we sourced durable, eco-friendly materials and added innovative features to traditional silhouettes.
Our mission was clear – to create the company we wished existed, a brand that not only brings joy to pets and their people but also contributes to a greener, happier world.
Now, that's worth howling about!
