It’s been my favorite name ever since I read To Kill a Mockingbird. We considered naming our daughter Scout until Demi Moore named her daughter Scout. So we switched gears and named our Dachshund, Scout.
My mother always said, “We know that God has a sense of humor because he created the Dachshund. Dachshunds are characters.” They’re unexpected, very clever, and very smart. We loved the idea of taking this image and making it iconic in the sense that it’s a dog wagging its tail–who doesn’t love that? It makes you happy, makes you laugh, and makes you feel good.
The actual label evolved from the idea that black and white is timeless and ageless–something that works up and down and sideways. I also love what pinking shears do to fabric. They give it that funky little jagged edge, which is complemented by the classic, faux top stitching. Now there’s a whimsical spin on something that’s truly functional, fashionable, and fun.
