All of our leather collars are made from full grain veg tanned leather. This item has no synthetic covering and has been finished by hand so it will require a little care which will ensure a long lifetime of use.
In case you haven’t heard of it before, veg tanned leather refers to an all-natural process of tanning leather using natural tannins found in various barks and woods. The process takes upwards of two months and unlike chrome tanning (the most common type of tanning process), it is environmentally friendly and safe. Veg tanned leather also offers an element of breathability and flexibility making it more comfortable for you and your pupper.

Leather Care: The collar has been coated with a natural beeswax and orange oil protectant, however it is important to try to follow the guidelines below;
Please Note: The tan leather may transfer a small amount of colour onto light clothing/items, this is a typical characteristic of vege tanned leather and not a cause for concern. The wax protectant we utilize aims to minimize any colour transfer however we cannot guarantee total prevention.
Hardware: All of the hardware is made from solid brass, this means it will darken over time as the metal oxidises in the atmosphere. This will not damage the hardware but should you wish to polish it back to its original brilliance, you can use any readily available brass polish (eg. Brasso), just make sure you protect the leather first by covering it with a protective cloth.
