About

The cycle that uses groomed dog hair to make proceeds to help those same dogs through the Humane Society.
The cycle that uses groomed dog hair to make proceeds to help those same dogs through the Humane Society.

Doris Carvalho, Veterinarian and Fashion Designer from Brazil. Each handbag is designed and made from sterilized, groomed, dog hair that has been turned into thread. A passion for fashion combined with a decade of Veterinary experience helped me develop the process that brings this collection together. Each handbag is a bold, custom design, uniquely made by hand for each consumer, thus making it a true work of art. These handbags are ecologically designed to help curve the immense global footprint on the planet, accessories used in the designs are also from raw pieces from the Earth. My product adds value to a sustainable society. Part of the profits from Fur You by Doris collection will go to the Humane Society to directly help those animals that are in need.

My goal is to raise $15,000. With this money I can make my first handbag collection. Once I have the handbags, it will be easier to market them and get them into a boutique near you! The fur is free, any groomer, any where is happy to dispose of the fur. The design of each handbag is unique for each piece. No 2 handbags are the same!

Please support this project to begin production of the handbags, I am thankful for ANY contribution.

Risks and challenges

There are no risks to this project, except not having the funds to start production. Production is ready to begin at my financial readiness.

- Ill take fur from groomers who donate it happily.
-The fur goes through a sterilization process.
-Then the fur is turned into thread.
-Then the thread will be used to make the handbags.
-Then the handbags will be sold at awesome boutiques near you.
- And finally, a portion of sales will be donated to help dogs through the Humane Society.
