An exciting evolution for Jo Rose Design

The past year and a half have been an amazing opportunity of growth for me personally and professionally as a maker. I have so much gratitude for the lessons I have learned from building Jo Rose Design and I am especially thankful for your support!

A new direction

If you have browsed my site lately, you likely know my creative interest took a turn toward dog gear after getting two puppies last spring (which turned me into a full-on dog mom ;-) hah!). After several months of reflection, I have determined that my heart is happiest combining design and function for dogs and their humans. 

So that I am able to fully focus on this path, I have decided to transition away from bags and accessories under the Jo Rose Design brand. 

Final Jo Rose Design inventory

All of the final Jo Rose Design inventory is up to date on my website. I will try to communicate through social media when I am down to the last item of certain stock, but if there is something you’ve had your eye on, I encourage you to consider purchasing it now as there is no replenishment available. As a thank you for your support, I am offering free shipping for all orders during this transition period.

Custom work

If you have been wanting to commission a bag, I am happy to chat and see if I have material available to meet your design needs. I am not planning to buy additional hides of leather, so we will just be constrained by what I have on hand. But feel free to reach out and start the conversation if this is of interest to you!

What’s next

The website will eventually be replaced by the new dog-centric brand ( timing TBD based on how much stock is left and when my new website will be ready). I will continue to keep my Jo Rose Design instagram for communication as needed.

I have so many exciting ideas (both in terms of product design for dogs and their owners and ways to build community around the joy that dogs bring us) that I can’t wait to share more in the coming months! 

Follow on Instagram or Facebook to keep up to date on the latest details!

All my best,
