The adorable idea was originated by Jennifer Parker, Amazing Race reality star & former NBA Clipper Girl ( ahh a gorgeous female athlete and a dog lover?? We love her already! ) With credentials from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and her love for dogs it was only natural that she came up with the exciting furry friend fashion!
Rusty, her 5lb Yorkie-Poodle ( you may recognize Rusty as the face of Ruff Ties ) was the inspiration behind the idea of Ruff Ties. After traveling the world through 26 countries on the Amazing Race, Parker got a robust taste of what else occurs on this earth including poverty at its worst, diverse cultures, breathtaking scenery, different religions, foreign rituals, intriguing landmarks, and inspirational art.
The fashion-forward enthusiast recognized the excessive consumption and waste trend happening in America. She then learned about the United States’ high rate of landfill waste and discovered that only 15% of all clothing textiles are recycled, according to the Offices of Textiles & Clothing Recycling. Upon her return from the Amazing Race, she purchased the love of her life, Rusty, and proceeded to donate almost all her clothes and belongings and began a new way of life, utilizing what is currently available rather than producing more.
It was then that Parker started to shop for fun accessories for Rusty, but noticed there was not a lot of fashionable pieces for pets. Looking in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York, she found nothing…. and this was when the best part of Ruff Ties all began….
“Well there wasn’t any prêt a porter for pets lets just say. While on our journey, people would comment about Rusty…’She’s so cute…!’ I would politely correct and say, ‘this is Rusty’ …..I felt bad for the little guy, I want the world to know he is a dude! So I gathered old clothes of mine, Mom’s and Grandma’s and started cutting and sewing with the thought of a neck tie to make him look manly when we left the house, so there would be no “she” mistaking. Without making it 5 steps from the house on the lively Newport Beach Peninsula, I began to get stopped several times a week and asked where they could purchase “HIS” tie. Mission accomplished! “, says Jennifer Parker.
…….So she started making neck and bow ties for pets, or a much cooler and more meaningful version of what was already out there. Ruff Ties is determined to raise the low annual percentage rate of Textiles and Clothing Recycling while styling pets as well as Ralph Lauren does humans.
So if you want to style your pup with luxurious custom dog apparel while helping the environment, a Ruff Tie is the perfect way to do so… Heck, get a few for Fifo.
