Carole Cusumano is a seasoned entrepreneur & fashion professional designing and developing unique product brands for more than 20 years. Always on the cutting edge, Carole has continually created successful businesses either while working in her own collections or in collaboration with established brands.
Serving her passion for new trends and innovation, Carole wanted to find a product to use as a model for one more company. The new company would utilize the latest in technology – while embracing traditional knowledge of apparel manufacture. Her requirements were that the product should have apparel elements, have mass market appeal, be genderless, and be something that she could handle logistically in New York City.
In 2003 she left the day to day of apparel design and turned her attention to consumer products specifically the pet industry.
Carole’s first pet company is the luxury brand called cloak & dawggie®. The company, positioned at the top of the pet boutique channel is now sold and distributed through Quaker Pet Group LLC and carole is back to developing new products!
A solid believer in USA made Carole manufactures the core products in New York City primarily of USA materials, and sews to the standards of high end human apparel. Carole perfected and brought to market the Velcro® soft harnesses and has built a solid reputation for innovative design and consistency in quality.

binki + boo is a contemporary collection of sterling silver dog breed bracelets honoring your best friend!
“I did the collection in a very simple modern way inspired by hours of drawing dogs with a very talented 8 year old goddaughter! I’ve always believed in design meeting function and relevence! Most of the dog themed jewelry available was very classic and traditional!”
“I wanted to give all of us who love our pets and love our jewelry something modern, special, and sweet! Great for gift giving and keepsakes - the collection is based on the personality and playfulness of all the pets that we love! Stay tuned for more!”
Carole has worked extremely hard to achieve that combination of utility and style in everything she makes.
. . . high design with function, fashion and FUN!
