About

Hi. My name is Emmalee Valentine. Thank you for taking the time to view my project! 

I live in the middle of a rural county, so it is hard to find a good job that doesn't cost more than I make in gas. I love animals, and have always had plenty, so there is nothing I'd like to do more than to accessorize them for a living! I will make cat and dog collars, and then expand to offering harnesses, leashes, and perhaps even carriers in the future once I feel more comfortable in my experience. My collars will be cotton and therefore washable, and made from organic material. I will have all sorts of patterns! I will also offer custom made collars, where you can choose everything down to the hardware –– you can even send me requests for fabrics I do not have in stock! I will strive to make each and every item as high quality as possible, and in patterns you will not see anywhere else! 

The fund goal amount includes the costs of all of the equipment and a good starting supply of material and hardware. It also includes shipping supplies such as boxes and packing materials. 

Risks and challenges

There are plenty of risks to owning a business, especially starting one from scratch for an accessory item. My success will depend largely on my ability to market it out to my customers, and on the economy's state. Taste is also subjective, so even though a lot of people might prefer my collars over the store-bought nylon ones, some may not like them!

However, I am very passionate about my business! Pets are hard not to pamper, and the collars from the pet stores can be hard to wash and uncomfortable. There don't seem to be enough options out there, for dogs or for cats! I want to create comfortable, washable and environmentally conscious products that best suit each individual animal which it clothes. I want to have a personal relationship with my customers to ensure their satisfaction –– I feel that no large company that creates anything could achieve that. I love animals, and I would love to reach the prowess to where I can donate a large portion of my earnings to rescues and no-kill shelters while still keeping the business running! I have created things ever since I was a child. Making things comes naturally to me, just as much as connecting with my customers does. And you will not find any business owner who is more passionate about pets than me!
