Happy Hazel is a brand that focuses on creatives for dog-lovers, with a heart, as they contribute part of their proceeds for the needy dog associations
What was your inspiration behind starting Happy Hazel?
Our inspiration is our lovely corgi! We hope to capture and translate the cute expressions and behaviours of dogs into graphics for dog lovers. We also hope to spread more love to the needy dogs by contributing part of our proceeds to dog associations. Since my Hubby (Honkit) can draw well and I love handicrafts, we have set up Happy Hazel together.
Do you plan on expanding on products featuring other types of pets in the future?
We are adding more products progressively to cater to different buyers. Also, we are working on different pet graphics (other than corgi) including cats.
What makes you unique in this field of ‘pawducts'?
The graphics which are specially designed by us are unique. :) The products are also carefully scrutinised to ensure high quality standards and we allow our buyers the option for customisation of graphics.
Tell us a bit more about who ‘Hazel’ is in Happy Hazel
Hazel is our 2-year old red & white corgi. We were cracking our brain on a name of our shop and Honkit suddenly mentioned "why don't we call it Happy Hazel?" hahaha so immediately I went to create social media accounts and domains with the name. By the way, we have our 2nd dog, Olive, too.
