so why buy a coat from AK Creations?

Jagger in deluxe snoggla coat

design

I have been designing and making coats for sighthounds for over 10 years. The coats I make are all my own design, and this experience has allowed me to refine my patterns for a superior fit.

My coats are tailored for the unique curve of a sighthound's spine and are deliberately high cut around the front legs to allow maximum freedom of movement for hounds that like to zoom about.

The AK Creations unique hood design is shaped around the face so the rain is kept off the head, but your hound can still see where they are going. My 'snoggla', 'snuggla' and 'sniggla' coats have a fitted chest panel which has come about through customer feedback - particularly from customers with male dogs. The same applies to my pyjamas which have an elasticated chest panel so they do not need to be removed for toiletting.

quality and attention to detail

Every item sold by AK Creations is designed and made by me. I am proud of my designs and the quality of my work. I believe in quality over quantity and that every AK Creation coat is an investment. I only use the very best quality fabrics and threads, ordering solely from suppliers in the UK using small family run businesses wherever possible.

If an AK Creations coat is advertised as waterproof, then you can be assured that I have spent the time making welt seams and sealing them on the inside so that water cannot seep through.

When making my quilted deluxe coats, I mark the coat pattern on the fabric and then stitch around this. I then stabilise the quilt stitch where it crosses this line before cutting the coat out. This prevents the quilting from unravelling around the edges of the coat over time.

Colour matching threads to fabric is vital to the overall finish of a coat and so I will always change threads where the fabric colour changes.

The stress point on my coats is the shoulder seam, therefore this seam is quadruple stitched for maximum strength.

AK Creations coats are made to last. You should only need to come back if you require a different colour or just fancy one of my other designs. However, returning customers are always most welcome!

choice

With AK Creations offering you 35 different shades of polar fleece, 35 waterproof fabrics and 19 quilted showerproof fabrics, you are free to choose any colour combination you desire. That means that for the snuggla coat alone there could be over 6,500 combinations!

Aside from the colour choices, I also offer a full range of coats for indoor and outdoor use to cover every eventuality.
