The Masai Blue Check collar from Hiro & Wolf is crafted from the Masai cotton fabric with thick vegetable-tanned leather.
The fabric is backed onto tough polyester webbing and stitched together using nylon thread. Hardware is high quality buckles and d-rings are made from solid brass with nickel plating. The collar is secured by 2 rivets making it suitable for large dogs or small strong ones!
The Masai cotton fabric is durable and has been sourced from and woven in Kenya, East Africa. Woven with the striking Masai pattern, the traditional Kitenge* fabric is extremely hard-wearing, easy to clean and looks fabulous on both long- and short-haired breeds.
*Kitenge fabric: cotton fabric with distinctive designs and colours mostly use for clothings by East African women
These collars and leashes are hand-made in the East London studio and rigorously tested by Hiro and Wolf themselves on muddy walks through Hackney marshes (grassland on western bank of River Lea in Hackney) and occasional shopping trips to Liberties!
Take this collar with its matching classic or hands-free leash for the most stylish hound in the park!
Care instructions: easy cleaning by wiping down with warm water and mild soap, and drying thoroughly.
* Hand-crafted in studio in Columbia Road, East London.

Care where your gear is made in?
We are thrilled to feature Hiro and Wolf, a brand which devotes itself to fair trade in East Africa, by engaging the Bombolulu workshop, a non-profit organization and a member of the World Trade Organization. The brand works with the physically disabled artisans in crafting jewellery, textile and leather products, by paying them a fair price. The regular income the artisans received not only empower them socially and economically, it supports the community, keeping them away from illegal poaching, thus protecting the environment and wild life in the area.

I am a doggo who has been spoilt with lots of toys. Therefore I am fussy about the toys I choose to play with. This sharky has a special squeak and is good for a big dog like me. It is relatively sturdy (am not an aggressive chewer). I love it!
