For pet lovers, their little four-legged friends are not just pets—they’re family. So much so that pet parents actually treat their pets like their very own children. And how can you not? Pets bring so much joy into the household. They play with you, make you laugh, take away your stress, and in the process can make you feel so loved. Aren’t they just the best?
We recently hung out with some pet parents and their adorable dogs, and had the best day just taking pictures and playing around with them. Meet our pawdels (paw models) below!
These adorable doggos, Ichiban, Luca, Kip, and Raava are all dressed in Pawdel genuine leather collars. And we have to admit, they’re all looking quite en vogue. Can we be part of the pack, please?
We also got to meet some stylish cats looking so on point in their accessories. Say hi to fluffballs Astra and Orion:
In these photos, Astra is wearing a chic Pawdel sailor bow, while Orion is donning a very cute checkered Pawdel bow tie, fit for his energetic personality.
When you love something, you want to give them the very best. All pet parents feel this way! That’s why many pet parents like to accessorize their pets in style, because they feel good when they know their pets look and feel good. After all, style is a statement of love.
Pet in style with Pawdel
Such is the story of the founders of local pet fashion brand, Pawdel. Rasmia and her partner Arrian stumbled upon a stray puppy on New Year’s Eve 2014. The little one kept following them, and unable to just walk away from the poor thing, they took him in and gave him a home. A good, loving home. They named him Robby, after the street they got him from—Roberto Street. Cute!
Robby back in 2014
As a pair of stylish individuals, they wanted their new furbaby to be stylish as well. But they couldn’t find what they wanted for Robby, and saw the lack of fashionable and quality pet accessories here in the Philippines. So, they figured if they couldn’t find it, they would just have to make it themselves.
And thus Pawdel was born—a pet fashion brand for furparents who want their pets to not only feel good but look good, too.
Pawdel’s genuine leather collars and stylish bows
Pawdel’s line of fashionable (and not to mention high-quality) genuine leather collars and bows don’t just guarantee that your furbaby would be turning heads, they also make sure that your pets are comfortable and feeling good when they wear them. After all, Pawdel’s creators made sure their accessories are made only from quality materials.

Pawdel’s collars are made from genuine leather, and designed to make your pet look and feel good
With Pawdel’s genuine leather collars, there’s no need to worry about the wear and tear. Unlike an ordinary collar that gets beat up pretty badly (and usually in such a short amount of time), Pawdel’s leather collars age nicely, just as all genuine leather should. They don’t peel like synthetic leather does. With the right care, Pawdel’s genuine leather collars could be with your pets for a lifetime.

As for the bow ties and sailor bows, each bow features a stylish design and an easy-slide on garter at the back so you can slip it on your pet’s collar for that camera-ready, fashionable look.

For pet parents, how their furbabies feel and look matter because they’re extensions of themselves. After all, if we groom ourselves and dress in style because it makes us feel good, why wouldn’t we want the same for our furbabies? ;)
