Our passion for exceptional design, along with our commitment to quality is evident in every piece we create. All coop products are made in the USA using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.
Founder Sheri Zarafshan , creates all coop products through her experience in a variety of disciplines including industrial, interior and fashion design with an emphasis on high-end leather accessories. She draws inspiration from a variety of sources including, of course, her dog and muse: Mr. Cooper – a little Boston Terrier with a big personality.
• coop Produces in USA
We make all our coop leather accessories and footwear in downtown Los Angeles with trained Italian artisans. We choose to make our products in-house, not just to have an eye on process of making them, but also to support production and manufacturing in USA.
• Quality matters for coop
We are also working closely with independent manufactures to get quality products in our store.All our traditional leather comes from Italy and is a by-product of the food industry. This means that no animal was killed solely for its hide, and that the leather is used to create hides instead of ending up as another wasted product for disposal.
• coop curates from the best-of-the-best USA
We are constantly working with American designers who produce their designs in the USA to bring them on board and present on our online boutique. “Buy local” is what we promote here at coop so we are building community of American designers, with sophisticated tastes, who create and build their ideas in home, USA. We believe eight paws are better than four, and are always interested in partnering with like-minded designers who share a similar approach to product design. So please, don’t be shy, and send us a wag – we would love to hear from you!
• coop is giving back
We give back to the community by donating 10% of our profit from all “coop” product sold to several nonprofit animal rescues. Please, let us know if you know any of them in your neighborhood in need, and we will add them to our donation list
