Card

JACKSON, Wyo.–(Business Wire)–Luxury Card, a leader in the metal credit card industry, shared its recent partnership with the pet product brand Boo Oh.

As an artist and industrial designer, the first-time dog owner struggled to find quality accessories with a thoughtful aesthetic, so she turned her creative spirit to the task, developing pieces both functional and stylish. Boo Oh’s debut line certainly reflects Jung Oh’s driving passion to make beautiful and practical objects.
