Let’s Have a Bru

All you regulars over here on Paws and Prada have no doubt noticed that the last three months have been more than a little big quiet for me. There haven’t been many blog posts and my presence over on Twitter and Instagram has been lacking. I apologise for that, and rest assured that everything over here is just fine. I even have a good reason for the radio silence, and that reason is Bru.

Bru is my new business, and it launched just a week ago. Specialising in mugs featuring illustrations and graphics of dogs, Bru also offers a small selection of tote bags and coasters. I’ve launched it with just a small core collection of mugs, and will be adding a new dog breed (chosen by Bru’s customers and social media followers) to the range every month. There will also be fun limited edition collections a few times each year.

I have had so much fun designing the mugs and creating the illustrations, and that is the best bit. If you want your own hound turned into an illustration and splashed across a mug, then your wish is granted with Bru’s personalised, one of a kind mugs.

In the seven days since Bru launched, I have been on a total high. I have been sending mugs to the United States, Germany and Australia, as well as across the UK. I’ve had emails from customers wishing me luck in my new venture, practically every day. It has been the perfect start to my new journey and I can’t wait to see where this new business will take me, and to finally have the time and energy to get back to blogging on Paws and Prada again.

Oooh how exciting! Well done! I'd love to see a Border Collie on a mug, but a proper farm looking collie not a pretty show one ;)
Good luck!
