The following post is brought to you by Paco & Lucia. We’re very paw-ticular about our partners and only feature those we think are top dog.
Sisters and animal lovers Alejandra and Pauline Martinez launched Paco & Lucia in 2016. Born in Peru, the Martinez sisters have lived throughout South America, Europe, and the US. When they set out to pursue their shared passion and design a line of pet clothing, they wanted to combine their global fashion influences while honoring the beauty of their country and its people. And thus, Paco & Lucia was born!
There’s no denying it: Paco & Lucia jackets stand out! Their timeless styles combined with the richness of Peruvian textile designs are elegant, beautiful, and totally unique within the world of dog apparel. Each coat is handmade by Peruvian tailors and seamstresses using premium materials. The high attention to detail and quality is evident in every aspect of the finished product!
“I want one for myself!” is something that we hear quite often from our customers’ owners. Our goal when starting Paco & Lucia was to develop a line of pet clothing that was as thoughtfully designed and carefully made as clothing for children. So when we hear that people want one for themselves, we know we’re doing something right.
Whether you choose classic corduroy, micro-suede, or a water-resistant coat, each Paco & Lucia jacket is super easy to care for, thanks to their machine washer and dryer friendliness. (Before a design goes into production, it’s been thoroughly tested to ensure that every style of coat ages beautifully!) Each jacket includes its own gorgeous garment bag and an option to arrive gift-ready — just in time for the holidays. Plus, 1% of all online sales are donated to animal rescue organizations!
Available in sizes 8-24 to fit a wide variety of dogs, including Frenchies and Corgis (hooray!). Check out the complete Paco & Lucia collection at www.pacoandlucia.com.

More About Peruvian Textiles:
Peruvian weavers have achieved worldwide recognition for the beautiful and intricate textile designs they create. This ancient textile tradition spans close to 10,000 years, and was considered in early Peruvian civilizations to be of even higher value than gold. The knowledge and art of weaving has been passed down through generations and today plays an important role in the Andean culture and social organization.
Through their detailed creations, the Andean people share their life, customs, magical surroundings, and most importantly, keep alive the tradition of their ancestors, the Incas. Peru’s complex history and soul is felt through the beat of its music and dances, the colors and flavors of its food, and the threads and stories of its textile designs.
