Sorry I ate Your Dog
Sorry I ate your Dog designs and manufactures quality t-shirts and vests for adults and children featuring original and quirky screen printed illustrations.
Laura Fotheringham, Sorry I ate your dog’s founder, has a background in graphic design and a love for illustration and print-making. She is also very interested in conservation, and hopes to create awareness through her designs inspiring children to protect our dwindling natural resources.
Linked to the planned publication of an alphabet themed picture book, Sorry I ate your Dog products each feature an illustration depicting a letter of the alphabet using imagery drawn from a range of eclectic sources: classic fairy tales, mythology, steampunk and the South African bush veld. The Letter P, for example, features an African Penguin
The surreal humour of these beautiful designs has appeal for children as well as adults and the absurd name of the brand is drawn from the childhood excuse “My dog ate my homework!” It is meant to inspire giggles and no pups were harmed in the process!
The Design Company is based in Plettenberg Bay in the Western Cape and our products are all hand made in our Cape Town factory using ethically sourced and local materials.
