Homebound during recovery, Carol turned to her love of dogs and textiles for therapy –and began creating dog beds, toys and robes for her friends’ pets. Soon, she was taking orders and hand sewing each one with care – launching Harry Barker from a table in her New York City loft. Today, Harry Barker uses earth friendly fabrics and azo-free dyes, eco-fleece and “green” bed inserts made from 100% post consumer recycled plastics. Harry Barker features all natural ingredients for treats and biodegradable shampoos. Whether it’s a collar made from 100% certified recycled plastics, a hemp striped dog bed filled with eco-fiberfill, or biodegradable pet waste bags made from recycled plastics, Harry Barker aims to improve the lives of pets and their people.
