2.8 Design for Dogs was founded in 2016 by the idea of Anna Bussolotto, a portrait photographer, driven by the search for beautiful and functional items to dedicate to her beloved dachshunds, Quintale and Hermione, as well as the sophisticated spaces of her own home.

Love Without Boundaries:
We believe that dogs are an integral part of our families. Our brand celebrates the love, care, and affection we have for our four-legged companions. They hold a special place in our lives and deserve the utmost respect and love. Challenging the conventional way of thinking about dog accessories, we make them beautiful and enriching for both us and them.
Our brand draws from Italy's rich heritage of universal beauty. Every detail of our design is carefully crafted to reflect Italian refinement, elegance, and the art of living.
Each creation is the result of an educated eye for beauty ("the eye sees what it knows"), by Anna Bussolotto, an Italian fashion and portrait photographer. Ours is a timeless design with simple forms and coordinated colors that evoke nature.
Our aesthetically pleasing products evoke the feeling of effortless elegance in color, proportions, and tactile sensations.
Our dog beds, blankets, and food bowls are all designed to harmoniously fit into an elegant interior design.

Our philosophy is based on awareness and responsibility toward our first home, our planet.
From the very beginning, the purpose of 2.8 Design for Dogs has been to strengthen and simplify the unbreakable bond between dogs and humans. Two friends, one soul: this is the spirit that guides our philosophy and creations, in the name of the boundless loyalty that our most faithful friends give us every day. A connection that goes beyond words and finds its place in our hearts and everlasting, precious emotions.
With this concept of friendship and devotion to inspire us, 2.8 is committed to making the sharing of our lives with our beloved dogs even deeper.
To align with our values of sustainability, ethics, and harmony with nature, we have created Greenie, a line of animal-free accessories. In this new collection, we have replaced leather details with more sustainable, animal-friendly alternatives in some of our best-selling articles. In keeping with our tradition, the new products are completely handcrafted and their quality comes to life through skilled Italian craftsmanship. This is just a small first step towards even deeper sustainable growth for our business, ensuring quality and happiness for all animals.
