The Day of the Dead is a Mexican festival celebrating and praying for loved ones that have passed. The style of the Day of the Dead is very stylised and beautiful, with bright colours, and that style has inspired the Day of the Dead tea cosy design.
When discussing tea cosy designs in the Facebook group, someone mentioned a Pug dog tea cosy and then a few other members also expressed an interest in a pug tea cosy, so that's how a pug got on the design ideas list.
