Vegetable Tanned Leather
The ancient craft of naturally tanning leather is complex and fascinating. Only natural materials such as leaves and husks are used to dye the leather, after which, each hide is hung for several weeks. This is compared to the globally dominant method of Chromium tanning, which reduces the process to a mere few days. Whilst certainly time-effective, it is important to me to try to avoid using chrome-tanned leather, as the vast use of chemicals in this process is very harmful to the environment, our waterways and oceans.
Apart from this being an ethical choice, it’s very much aesthetic and practical – veg-tan leather is beautiful, often displaying the history of life through scars and imperfections. The material will develop a wonderful patina unique to each owner and after years become a treasured object.
There are 2 ways in which you can determine the right size collar for your dog.
Option 1: Measure your dogs old collar. to do this, lay the collar out as use a tape measure from the inner edge of the buckle to the hole most used. This will give you the correct size.
Option 2: Measure your dogs neck. there should be enough room so its not tight or loose - a rough gauge is to allow 2 fingers to sit under the tape whilst measuring.
