Winter is coming—and your fur-babies deserve only the best threads (especially those who are lacking a little bit of hair and could use a hand). Hong Kong is as pet-obsessed as can be, and it’s not unusual to see some of our four-legged pals in enviable duds when going for a casual stroll—or even dressed to the nines for a special celebration! Here are some of Hong Kong’s best home-grown petwear brands so your felines and canines can look their best for all seasons and occasions, from casual looks to formalwear and more.
Newly launched Momotone is everything you would want from a sleek and modern petwear brand. Photogenic pet models—check. Chic design and clean lines—check. Punny collections—check! Founded in 2020 by Twiggy Mo, mother to four cats (both furry and hairless), Momotone insists on high-quality garb for felines and canines, designed for a timeless look and various functions. Ethically crafted with premium eco-friendly Japanese fabrics and soy-based inks, her products are made right here in Hong Kong by local craftsmen.
Shop from their current collections for the perfect pet wardrobe and get ready for your fur-babies to be showered in compliments—these duds are the real deal.
Getting all jazzed up for a special occasion? Look no further than Take a Bow, which specialises in bowties, sailor bows, bandanas, and more! Sorted into themed collections, ranging from Japanese and nature to food and luxury, these accessories are perfect to spice up any petwear outfit and make your pooch the star of the show. Come on—who can resist a pancake-patterned bandana for their voracious chum?
Looking for costumes that transcend the usual synthetic threads from Taobao? Momoji is the place to go. Halloween may have just passed, but themed get-ups can be worn whenever when you’re a four-legged cutie! Dress your pet up as a frightening Chinese vampire, a regal emperor from the Qing dynasty, a smart pilot, or take them to work with you in a professional business suit. Uniquely imagined for serving up sweet and comfortable looks, Momoji’s signature “pet bib collar” was recently honoured with the Hong Kong Smart Design Award 2020.
Born out of a love for pets—what else?—St Bark specialises in chic baseball caps for dogs, designed to protect their eyes from the sun (and for making your puppers look cool as heck!). Made with an eco-friendly and anti-UV fabric called Specortex, this line of headwear is reversible and anti-bacterial, so your doggo is only wearing the best of the best. Colours range from aquamarine to bright coral and more muted tones like grey and light blue and hats come in three sizes. Best of all, St Bark is stocked in different pet accessories shops around Hong Kong so you can just stop by and check out the best fit and colourways for your pet in person—click here to see the full list.
Why not dress up your fur-babies and your human babies in the same show-stopping threads?

All of their orders are packaged in acid-free wrapping paper and custom-designed cardboard boxes to reduce the use of plastic bags, too.
