Harpermade is a brand that provides trendy, minimalistic and high quality apparel and items for animal lovers.
I'm Caitlyn, Harper’s dog mom and proud creator of Harpermade.
Born and raised on Long Island, NY I grew up with my two amazing sisters, a love for home decor, design, and a passion for gymnastics that eventually led me to Raleigh, NC. There, I competed as a Division I gymnast for NC State and got my best friend and inspiration, Harper! My long haired wiener dog is a sassy, loving, and adorable little girl who quickly became my world. After graduating, I returned home to work as an educator, and while I was proud of my position, I often would daydream of what a career that incorporated my love for dogs and design would be like... and then 2020 hit. With months and months of quarantine throwing lemons our way, I decided to make lemonade. I picked up an old t-shirt and made something that would brighten my days, a shirt with my sweet Harper on it! Soon, my little at home craft would launch into a custom apparel company where I get to create pieces that make pet parents across the country as happy as Harper makes me. I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason and I couldn’t be happier that I found my passion with Harpermade. Your support and love has meant the world and I can’t wait to create more custom pieces that you LOVE! So shop small, shop Harpermade... we are pawsitive you will love it ;)
