Koskela’s handwoven pet beds for the most stylish of pooches

Pooches deserve to snooze in style right?

Well that’s the idea behind Koskela’s “Baba Tree” pet beds. These handwoven baskets are one of a kind and are made from natural fibres. But you know what I love the best? The fact that by purchasing a Baba Tree basket, you are empowering a community. Let me explain…

Australia’s Koskela is a furniture, design and lifestyle brand that champions social enterprise.

Founded by partners Russel Koskela and Sasha Titchkosky in 2000, the company now sells Australia’s largest range of Australian made and ethically produced homewares, furniture, lighting, art and juniors.

Plus, In 2017 Koskela became a Certified B Corporation and part of the global movement of people using business as a force for good.

One such way Koskela are doing that is by partnering with social enterprise Baba Tree Basket Company, based in Bolgatanga in Ghana’s Upper East Region.

Each day dozens, and sometimes even hundreds, of local artisans come to weave an array of baskets. As a fair trade company, Baba Tree ensures that weavers are compensated fully for their artistry.

And then we get to enjoy these handwoven, one of a kind baskets for our home and our beloved pets.

So take a look at the range below – and get shopping and supporting the incredible artisan weavers over here.

  • I didn’t have time to make pico de gallo so I drained some Rotel with the same ingredients (lime, cilantro, etc) and used it. Worked great! Thank you so much for sharing this! We WILL use it again.

  • These portobello pups are just too cute and they sound delicious. I’d take a grilled mushroom dog than a mystery meat hot dog any day. Can’t wait to try this!

  • Love the addition of the soft furnishings mention in your blog. Sometimes forgotten, we think its a beautiful way to soften this look and add a bit of texture and comfort with a few cushions and pillows.

  • this is also my biggest pet peeves. additional examples are making a photocopy, filing one piece of paper, and dictation – having you write something down they just said out loud very slowly (since you were writing).

  • As a groomer myself, I am always happy to spend 5-10 min showing a dog owner some at home care tips to prolong time in between grooms. If you do want to try clipping your dog yourself remember that there are real dangers to grooming. If you aren’t 100% comfortable when using sharp objects on the dog, the dog will sense that and be more jumpy & wiggly. There’s tons and tons of YouTube videos out thers

  • Love this post. I have kids and a dog.. and on top of that I am interior designer that is OCD! But my puppy needs to be inside and be a part of the family. Hence no white linen sofa.

  • I always make portabello “burgers” but I love the idea of slicing them lengthwise and making them hot dogs. Adorable, fun and so delicious. Thanks for the great idea!

  • Hahaha some cookie jars do have much too small of opening for the size cookies I enjoy. As for this recipe, hot dogs made breakfast style!? Love it.

  • I love this! So creative to make a dog house. 🙂 I love that stencil too! I’ve been trying to win it on EVERY cutting edge stencil giveaway I see.
