Picnic with pooch

Here's one for all the dog-lovers: A picnic basket for outdoor adventures designed with your canine companion in mind.

Designed by Miriam Mirri, PetNic is a handy organiser and useful basket for storing everything your four-legged friends need, either at home or on the road.

PetNic, part of the A Di Alesssi Spring-Summer 2014 collection, mimics the classic picnic basket shape, interpreted in a contemporary material of polypropylene. The corrugated outer surface texture is also reminiscent of a woven wicker basket.  

Not only pretty, the PetNic is also practical with a large handle for comfortable carrying while two detachable lids, can be used as bowls: one for water and one for food.

PetNic is an invitation to continue life with our animal friend outside the home, just for once putting our possessions (books, newspapers, games, and water) in a basket designed for them, says Mirri

PetNic is available in green, grey and pomegranate and these colours appear as alternating shades on the various parts of the organiser.

This handy basket is another edition to the vast collection of pet products created by the same designer: the Lupita and Lulà dog bowls, the Tigrito and Miò cat bowls and the LulàJar and MiòJar  cat biscuit containers.
