Taryn Zychal is an animal-loving Philadelphia-based designer who, through her company Recycling Zychal tries to keep everyone dry when it rains, even our four-legged friends.

She has designed these dog rain coats and hoods from rescued and recycled umbrellas. The old umbrellas are transformed into fun and functional wet-weather wear for humans and dogs. Recycling Zychal will be presenting this design at EcoTopia, an exhibition featuring twenty exciting new green/sustainable product designs submitted from all over the world being sponsored by Nectar, a Long Beach design consultancy.

Recycling Zychal accepts donations of broken or old umbrellas and will donate $1 to an animal rescue organization for each broken umbrella donated! More details about making a donation or purchasing a raincoat over at Taryn’s Etsy shop.
