This handmade leather dog collar is absolutely beautiful and that little bit of luxury for your dog. Hand stitched with pretty glass beads onto the leather. This bright and cheerful Kilifi Blue design features a central white zigzag with blue edging and light blue surround. The colours will look stunning against any coat colouring and is perfect for summer and winter alike.
Ethically sourced from Kenya in Africa, each of these soft leather collars is hand beaded in a range of glorious and colourful designs. Made using free range Kenyan cowhide leather and beautifully finished on the inside with a soft goat-skin lining. So soft and comfortable against your dog’s neck.
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.
There is a great range of sizes and widths to suit all dogs. As well as regular sizes, there is a skinny width version and a large n’ chunky for big dogs. Each collar comes with a fun beaded charm. Please note that the Micro and Skinny Mini sizes have a different pattern to the other sizes.
The furniture is a sturdy and reliable solid brass, hand cast by local artisans using melted down recycled brass. This benefits the environment and helps create employment too.
Each glass bead is hand-stitched, making the finish strong and long lasting. These unique leather dog collars 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 collars and optional matching leads bring you a flavour of Africa. Perfect if you are looking for something ethnic, ethical and that little bit special.
Place a fabric tape measure around your dog's neck as you would like the collar to fit (2 fingers under the collar is recommended as a good fit).

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).
