Meet Kelsie Macray of Beast and Babe

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kelsie Macray.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Kelsie. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started Beast and Babe a few years ago in Venice, CA after making some sweet dog leashes for my rescue dog, Yogi. We work with artisans or find special one-of-kind vintage fabrics that will turn into special limited run collections. We use solid brass hardware and produce our goods with care in California. We figure the world is filled up with enough ‘stuff’ so our everyday objects might as well be the special kind.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Small business life is always filled with bumps and potholes, based on the one-of-a-kind nature of many of our products scalability has been an issue as the word has gotten out.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Beast and Babe – what should we know?
We make rad dog goods- that’s the bulk of it. From there we’ll continue to grow and evolve, but we’re known for our collars, leashes, and beds. They are made locally with special materials, they are all small run, often with vintage and handmade fabric and designed in-house- you can feel the difference in them.

We came from the streets of Venice Beach that comes across in our goods; we are tropical modern, the high-end surf shack- that sort of vibe and that’s something I’m proud of because I gravitate towards that vibe myself.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Tenacity, passion, ability to learn.
