The Limited Edition Gilbert Cardigan was named after one of our four-footed children. Gilbert was rescued from a wretched puppy mill in 2013. Thankfully, he wasn’t filling his puppy-making quota, so he was surrendered to WeHelpAnimals.net, a rescue group run by our dear friends in Tennessee. He’s been an absolute joy to have in our lives.

Because of his smaller size and quiet disposition, Gilbert frequently accompanies me on many outings. His favourite outing is visiting our fabric makers in New York City where he gets doted on with treats and fabric swatches for bowties. His sweetness, quirkiness, and playfulness is emulated in the playful stripes and comfort of the Gilbert Cardigan.

May Gilbert’s namesake cardigan become a faithful everyday companion for you as well.
