After the Jump: Interview with Lyndsey Drago of Billy Wolf (MP3)


For this weeks radio show, I was thrilled to take a break from home design- and human design, for that matter- to speak with the creator of my favorite line of dog designs: Lyndsey Drago of Billy Wolf. I never thought Id be a dog owner, but ever since adopting Hope, Ive been happier than I even knew I could be and Ive been buying little treats and accessories for her like crazy. One day at the vet, I asked Hopes doctor if a coat was necessary when the temperatures started to drop and she told me that some breeds (especially smaller dogs or dogs with short hair) need extra warmth if theyre outside walking in super-cold temperatures. I took that as a literal doctors permission slip to give into my crazy side and buy Hope a few coats for sub-30 degree days. The first and only brand of coats Ive gone back to over and over is Billy Wolf. Made from found, vintage and deadstock fabrics, Billy Wolf coats are chic enough to be worn by humans and functional enough to grow with your dog and keep them warm without getting in their way. I was thrilled when Billy Wolfs founder agreed to come into the city to talk with me on the show, so I hope youll enjoy her insight into designing for pets as much as I did. Thanks to Lyndsey (and her dog!) for making the trek from Montauk to Brooklyn for the show! [You can meet Lyndsey and check out her designs at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar and Renegade Craft Fair over the next few weeks!] xo, grace I think the best way to make eco-friendly products is to make quality products that will last. Its not something that youre going to throw away. [8:45] I want people to get something for their dog that they would want for themselves.
