Our Story

The Dharf story begins with a simple needle and thread: adjusting hemlines and waistlines, attaching buttons and ribbon. 

In 2012, Isabelle, the original founder and designer of Dharf, launched an e-boutique store which quickly became well known around the dog lover community as a unique Australian designer for pets. As a result, DHARF.COM was born. 

Since then, Dharf has launched new products, expanded to new countries and innovated new ways to deliver products to pet owners. After five rewarding years, Isabelle made the decision to part with Dharf and focus on her growing family. 

And that's where I come in. 

Hi, I’m Maria Bartle, the new owner of Dharf. As long as I remember, I’ve been a mad animal lover and dogs have always been a big part of my life. Together with my husband, two crazy toddlers and soon to be Australian Cobberdog puppy, we live on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney.

For the past few years, I have been wanting to combine my passion for pets and design. When I learnt about the opportunity to continue the Dharf business, a match in heaven was made.   

It’s fair to say, as a dedicated pet lover, I will continue to offer the highest quality and most innovative dog and cat accessories to Dharf customers and their beloved pets. I strive to provide outstanding customer service and love to share my passion for animals with all of our amazing customers who support and believe in what Dharf stands for.

Rest assured, Dharf will continue to help owners celebrate their pets throughout Australia and beyond.
