Psst Are you a brand, artist, shelter, or ambassadog looking to get on Dogly?
Allku, Quechua for dog, is a group of Ecuadorian artisans and dog lovers creating high quality dog products.
From high in the Andes mountains, the Otavaleños have thrived as textile makers in the regions of northern Ecuador since long before the rise of the Inca Empire.
The Inca believed that a 'black dog companion' helped guide the spirits of the dead along the long dark road on the path to reincarnation. Without their dog guide, the spirits of the deceased would be forever lost, unable to complete the transition back into a living being. Today, dogs are a beloved part of the culture across Ecuador, Peru, parts of Colombia and Bolivia.
All of our products are handmade in Ecuador by artisans who have quite literally devoted their lives to honing their craft.
