Born With A Tail

Born With A Tail was born from Antonio Ballatore's desire to build a brand he could call his own. It will be Antonio's personal creative outlet that mixes his love for animals and eye for design. The possibilities are endless with what could come from Born With A Tail—apparel for humans and their pets, dog and cat accessories, kitchenware (black cat coffee mugs, anyone?) and maybe even some music related items.

In the near future, a percentage of all our sales will go towards animal-related charities and/or rescues. Right now we're doing research on reputable organizations and figuring out the details. Stay tuned for more!

About Antonio Ballatore

Inspiration is key for any designer. Antonio has been surrounded by visual art and design since he was a kid playing around in his Dad's art studio in Manhattan. Growing up he went through wild years pursuing a career as a rock star, ran his own construction company, and managed a bar that became the go-to haunt for Lower East Side musicians and artists. He eventually progressed to designing sets for still photography, interiors, and high-profile events. Whether for personal or professional projects, his early work established a lasting commitment to collaboration across fields on music, art, design, and entertainment.

Antonio rose to stardom as the winner of HGTV’s Design Star and host of The Antonio Treatment. In his new show, Animal Cribs, Antonio and his team of "Catsperts and Barkitects" use their expertise to transform drab, cramped homes and outside areas into functional, high-style spaces for both pets and the people they love.
