An Interview with Violet about Georgie Paws
Hi - I am Violet and I started Georgie Paws 2 years ago when I was 13. It started as a passion for dogs, but then I realised through a business, I could do so much more.
As the Creative Director, I get to do the really fun things like designing products, trade show stands and packaging.
But, as the founder, I also get to make decisions about other passions... reducing waste (finding ways to use the leather scraps is fun), working with our craftsmen in a fair and respectful manner (they are so talented, I'd be lost without them), recycling anything we can (mum says we have a "one paper clip" company!) and reducing plastic (that's a hard one - but we are finding ways around it... there is more I can do, and am still researching!).
Each day I am excited to come home from school to see what has happened at Georgie Paws, roll my sleeves up and help out. Homework gets in the way sometimes, but the advice I got from my pitch on Shark Tank, was to study hard, work hard, back myself and have fun!
I have 6 pets, George and Flora, Honey the cat and Twig, Gretel and Hazel the chickens. I love the beach, skateboarding with friends and brainstorming with mum.

Did you know that Violet will also be on Shark Tank soon?!!!!
Little bones need a bit of extra care. Using deliciously soft pig-skin, Flora collars add a lot of pizzaz to an already "pizzazy" little pooch.
Specially designed for little dogs and puppies, fine pig suede is light enough for little necks, but strong enough to keep them safe.
