Poetry - "Be loyal to what you love." E. Abbey
Before these beautiful collars reach completion, the hides are tanned with oak bark from the Lake District in huge underground pits after which the hides are hand finished. It’s a process that takes almost two years and is a far cry from the automated factory production of modern world tanneries. Our collars are entirely handcrafted from start to finish by craftsmen using traditional methods in a small tannery in Devon. The quality of their work is apparent in each collar made. The collars are finished with solid brass buckles, rivets and plates on which we have selected very special pieces of poetry.
We have four colours available.
Sand: A lighter coloured collar, light tan. This collar is unlined.
Cocoa: A Dark Brown colour. This collar is unlined.
Coal: A rich, dark black colour. This collar is unlined.
Cocoa Lined: A rich, Dark Brown colour with a beautiful leather lining. This collar is lined.
