Meet Wilhelm, Our Mascot
If you’ve has a look at our website or come to see us at our design studio and factory then you’ll know all about Wilhelm. Wilhelm is our mascot and surprise surprise, he’s a dog. Not just any dog. Wilhelm is a Saint Bernard.
But why a Saint Bernard I hear you ask? Well, the Saint Bernard is a Swiss breed of dog famous for being strong, versatile and reliable. The breed was famously used as farm dogs. Their size made them the perfect animal for herding and protecting their families in the rocky, mountainous regions between Switzerland and Italy.
The History of Saint Bernard’s
It was the monks at St. Bernards Hospice, on St. Bernards Pass, who first recorded this lovable breed of dog. This path was notoriously dangerous, with travellers often getting lost and going missing. It was then that the monk’s discovered how good Saint Bernard’s were at tracking and rescuing lost travellers.
The Saint Bernard earned its reputation as a versatile, reliable and strong animal to have around. All you have to do is look at their adorable, massive fluffy faces and you’ll fall in love with this breed of dog. Definitely a pet worth considering. But we love them for another reason.
