These handmade leather dog leads are absolutely beautiful and that little bit of luxury. Hand stitched with pretty glass beads onto the leather. There are a number of bright and cheerful designs to choose from, with something to suit every dog coat and colour. Matching collars are also available, so your dog can have the set.
Ethically sourced from Kenya in Africa, each of these leather leads are hand beaded in a range of stunning designs. Made using free range Kenyan cowhide leather and beautifully finished on the inside with a soft goat-skin lining.
The thick saddlery grade dark brown leather is finished with high quality natural "veg" tan. Unlike many cheaply made leather goods, the leather is not stained or sprayed. This means the dye will never be released, even in the harshest environments.
The furniture is a sturdy and reliable solid brass, hand cast by local artisans using melted down recycled brass.
Each glass bead is hand-stitched, making the finish strong and long lasting. These unique leather dog leads are a little bit of handmade luxury with loads of feel good factor. As well as buying a beautifully crafted product, each purchase helps people in impoverished communities to support and better themselves.
These items are fair trade. Workers are paid a fair price for their work and provided with fair working conditions. Local economies are supported through local employment and use of local materials. The ethos behind this range is Think Trade, Not Aid!
These leads and optional matching collars bring you a flavour of Africa. Perfect if you are looking for something ethnic, ethical and that little bit special.

Treat the leather well and it will grow even more beautiful with age. To clean, rinse in warm water then treat with Neatsfoot Oil for waterproofing or saddle soap. This will keep the leather healthy and supple. Avoid contact with salt (sea) water and chemicals (e.g. cleaning products, flea treatments).
