This luxury leather dog collar is handmade in Africa using gorgeous soft leather and hand stitched glass beads. Absolutely beautiful and that little bit of luxury for your dog. This classy Rafiki design is a metallic looking glassy grey in a stunning diamond pattern. This kind of design turns heads and will always be a classic.
Ethically sourced from Kenya, these luxurious leather collars are hand beaded to produce each wonderful design. 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. This benefits the environment and helps create employment too.
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.
As each glass bead is hand-stitched, the finish is strong and long lasting. These very special leather 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!
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).
