About our Luxury Dog Coats

This distinct fabric is made from woven cotton and worn by the Masai as their traditional dress, called the ‘shuka’.

Origins of shuka cloth is a much-debated topic.  One school of thought claims it is the combined result of cloth traded during the slave trade and the imported dyes from Madagascar during the 18th century.

Another is that the patterns were originally used to design the mud cloths and leather garments the Masai wore before fabric was readily available.  They also explain that these patterns and dyes were applied as decoration to their bodies, as well as their hut walls, during particular ceremonies such as weddings and naming ceremonies.

A further idea claims that the cloth patterns were introduced by Scottish missionaries during the colonial era of the 19th and early 20th centuries.  Either way, the patterns and colours produce fabulous fabric designs that are now clearly associated with the Masai culture of East Africa.

Every dog coat is made from this traditional shuka fabric and is lined with warm fleece to keep your dog snug during chilly weather.


Washing Instructions and Details

The coats are machine washable at 40⁰C and each one has a pocket in the back for those necessary poop bags.  There is also a convenient hole for the lead or harness to go through, so your dog is safe and secure as well as fun and fashionable!


Sizing

Malulu offers a variety of different dog coat sizes, so every dog can benefit from sporting a Malulu coat. Please check out the various size charts for details about our dog collar and dog lead measurements.

Please note: every dog is a different size! The breeds listed on the size chart are for guidance purposes only. The size charts aim to help you assess which coat is most suitable for your size of dog. As a guide, measurements for dog coats should be taken from the base of your dog’s neck where it joins his body, to the base of your dog’s tail.
