  • Barka Parka uses a premium quality poly/cotton Twill fabric. The dense weave of the fabric stops pet hairs and dirt from penetrating through the fabric into the inner filling.
  • Cat and dog hairs, even stiff ones, just sit on the top of the Slipcover. Most other pet beds use thin or open weave fabrics which allow hairs and dirt to get into the filling which causes odours and fleas to breed. It’s the hairs that carry the doggy smells and flea eggs.
  • Hairs won’t stick to the fabric. Easily just brush, vacuum or shake off!


  • Side seams are double sewn to give extra strength and durability.
  • Other seams are overlocked then oversewn on the outside for extra strength and durability.

The story of how the Slipcover was designed

light bulbThe Slipcover was designed by Janet, one of the founders of Barka Parka. Her sister Marion was struggling in the laundry trying to get an all over cover off a pet bed to wash. She was complaining about it to Janet who was making her bed upstairs. As she was putting the fitted sheet on her mattress she had a “light bulb” moment – “I could make the pet bed cover elasticated like this fitted sheet”.
Being a canny seamstress she got to on her sewing machine and made a trial slipcover. It was a great success. Her sister loved it and so did many friends. Thus the unique Barka Parka slipcover was born ……
