If you've seen the beagle on some of Lou and Friends' phone cases and tees, it's actually a cartoon rendition of a real one - it's namesake. Lou is the name of brand founder Chayanit's pet beagle. However, contrary to the brand name, poor Lou doesn't have any friends! Well, other than his loving owners, at least.
"Lou likes to bark a lot so all his friends get annoyed with him. We used to bring him for events with us but we don't do that anymore," Chayanit laughs.
Her line of products started out featuring only beagles, but customers started requesting for designs with different breeds of dogs, so she expanded their range from there together with her sister.
Chayanit believes that having an imagination is more important than knowledge. Considering the possibility that the nature of phone cases may change in the future, she does not want to stop at just one or two product lines and will look into expanding beyond tees as well. Well, sounds like a plan! We're looking forward to seeing more of Lou and his (imaginary) friends.
