The ROO Collection is a small family business, which consists of myself (Jess), the supporter of my crazy ideas/child wrangler/boss man and our tribe of three (soon to be four due in Sept), plus two dogs, a cat and few horses.
We initially started out after a grooming client (our other gig 'Jessica's Dog Grooming') wanted to purchase some bandanas that I made for clients. I have always enjoyed sewing so the bandana range stemmed from there and The ROO Collection was formed in June 2020.
I have an interest in animal health and have completed my Bachelor of Veterinary Bioscience and wanted a product to offer to clients that would help with cracked pads and hot spots which is how the paw balm range was brought to life and the beginning of our range of natural pet care products.
A little a bit me, I’m a ‘her day starts with a coffee and ends with a wine’ kinda gal. I love all animals but my real passion is with horses and dogs. All the members of our little gang help in one way or another. Orlando has helped pack 98% of our orders to date and has been the number one carrier of all orders to the post office, Olivia picks fabric prints and it’s pretty damn good at stealing scrunchies and lip balm stock and Riley the youngest is supervisor/ destroyer (he is currently banned from heping pack orders until the 'turdler' stage passes).
Which is how we picked the name The ROO Collection; I always call them my little ROO gang since combining the first letter of their names made ROO.
We have been blown away by all the support since opening and are so grateful for all the lovely people we have virtually met.
