For Your Pet: Beast and Babe

After moving to Venice Beach, former Floridian Kelsie Macray realized that blending into the artsy neighborhood required stylish new pet accessories. "I couldn't find a dog leash that fit my style and my pup Yogi's vibe, so I pulled out my Hello Kitty sewing machine and started making my own," she says.


Before long, Macray's craft project turned into a collection of leashes, collars, and dog beds for like-minded animal lovers across L.A. All of Beast and Babe's limited-edition items are made from vintage and artisanal fabrics, and a portion of the proceeds from every collar or leash sold helps to provide treatment and vaccinations for homeless or neglected animals via Peace Animals, a nonprofit that organizes free spay and neuter services in Mexico.
