Our love for dogs is at the heart of everything we do. They make our world infinitely better on so many levels so we hope to do the same for them in all the ways that we can.
We like to make great things for dogs, make them happy and have a bit of fun doing it.
Rufino started as a passion project to create great products for dogs. This took form in fabric and leather samples, colour-boards, design variations and lots of hand-drawn sketches coming out of a small bedroom apartment.
To get things from paper sketches into the real world, I worked closely with my now late father - a talented, hard-working leather smith who shared his life-learned knowledge and experiences with me about the leather craft and trade. Together we designed, developed and created our own range of handmade leather dog collars and Rufino was born.
Fast-forward two years and I find myself lucky enough to have built our side hustle into a full-time venture, designing and creating our own range of products made specially for dogs.
Our first creations were our limited-edition leather dog collars, handmade with premium quality leather. Since then, we have expanded our product range to include natural grooming products and functional treats for dogs.
As our journey continues to evolve, the heart and soul of the company will always remain the same - to better the lives of dogs with thoughtful, locally-made products and to honour the life of the man who helped to make our dream a reality.
We hope you love our products as much as we loved making them, not only for our furry friends but for you too. If you have any feedback you’d like to share or have thoughts on how we can do things better, you can email us anytime at email@example.com
