happily handcrafted

Handcrafted, high quality, and one of a kind.

The Stray Dog Way

We believe every home is as unique as the stories that live within it. That’s why there’s a story behind every Stray Dog Design; real hands that made it, real life that inspired it, and a real person we named it after.

the stray dog story

Rich in history & whimsy

The Stray Dog story begins in the picturesque village of San Miguel de Allende, high in central Mexico’s mountainous desert. This is where many stray dogs make a life for themselves...


Made by hand

Hecho a Mano

For over 25 years, we have collaborated with local artisans in San Miguel de Allende to blend our modern style with timeworn techniques. The result is handcrafted, high quality, and finished with character.

Made to order

Hecho a la Medida

Your next statement piece isn’t manufactured in bulk - it’s waiting on you. Each item in our store is carefully handcrafted, hand painted, and available only after your order has been placed. 

Made Fair

Hecho Justo

We are committed to providing the most earth-friendly products for your home. Because of this, we ensure all paper products are recyclable and every piece is finished with natural, safe ingredients.

Our Ethical Promise

Discover our commitment to fair wages, sustainability, and quality craftsmanship.
