Who says wabi sabi is just for humans? Dogs can indulge in the leathergoods hobby and explore the patina of time and experience with the handmade Never Been Better Co leather dog collar.
Materials and Construction
Cut from 9 oz. (3.57mm) thick US-sourced natural vegetable tanned saddle leather and furnished with solid brass appointments. This leather will naturally darken from exposure to sun, rain, your dog's oil, sweat, and anything else your dog can get itself into. Over time the color will shift from a light pale, pinkish tan to a rich, darker tan and brown with reddish hues.
Brass dee ring is removable if you use a harness or your pup doesn't need a leash because your dog is awesome and you're pack leader.
Edges are burnished and slicked by hand to keep the fibers tight and clean. Leather is nearly raw, given a few light coatings of natural neatsfoot oil to condition and soften the leather as part of the finishing process.
Measurements and Sizing
Collar is 1" thick. Holes are spaced 1" apart. If between sizes, order a custom size and let me know in the comments.
Condition regularly with neatsfoot oil, olive oil, Obenauf's LP, Montana Pitch Blend, Sno Seal or other preferred leather conditioning and weatherpoofing products as needed. This leather is sturdy but it is raw and will eventually disintegrate if neglected.
Made to order. Ships in 1-2 weeks.
