The Valgray Story

Valgray for Dogs™ [Est in 2019].

The fashion-forward, luxury lifestyle brand for pups & parents, born from a local, South African, dog-loving family of innovative designers & creators.

Family-founders, Marco & Rhodé, have been designing for most of their adult lives with expertise ranging from architecture, jewellery design and an array of creative digital marketing and branding. All of which can be found imprinted on the Valgray experience, from concept to client.

Valgray is more than just dog accessories. It’s the product of passion founded within the love and admiration for Juno, a Chinese Sharpei and the beloved fur-child of Marco & Rhodé.

“Our dogs are our worlds. They are angels placed in our hands and they deserve so much more than just the ordinary. That is why our mission through Valgray is to design and create beautifully sophisticated alternatives to the everyday dog accessories.” 

Since launching the very first Valgray collar in February 2019 the team has been on a passion-driven mission to expand their product offering in catering to the tastes of various modern-day sophisticates. 

At the same time, the support shown thus far has enabled the team to give back to dogs in need through several charitable initiatives. Something that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise, and for that the Valgray team thanks you! For further reading regarding the Valgray journey and initiatives, click here.
