Pitch’s Stitches does its part to help support a sustainable environment by upcycling fabrics found in her closet, thrift stores or yard sales such as neckties, jeans, cloth belts and ribbon into beautiful doggie apparel.  Pitch’s Stitches also supports dog rescue and donates collars and a percentage of sales to dog rescue organizations.

Pitch’s Stitches also makes bow tie/bows, hats, doggie neckties, leashes, and leash bags.  The bags are redesigned jeans pockets."
