About The Author

Founded and run by product designers, Omlet produces world famous pet products, including the market-leading Eglu. It all started in 2003 when four friends met at the Royal College of Art in London. They designed a revolutionary new chicken house which made it simpler to keep chickens in gardens.

It looked rather like an igloo and in a moment of punning genius that would define the next generation of chicken keepers, they named it the Eglu and an icon was born. Since then Omlet’s designs have delighted thousands of pets and their owners around the world through their uncompromising attention
to detail and innovative ideas.

Omlet products are available in Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand.
