While easy to clean plastic collars and leashes are nice, once in a while your dog wants to sport a bit of a classier look. For Spring ’16, Ruffwear announces the addition of leather collars and leashes to its line in order to satisfy even the most particular canine fashionista. The Frisco Collar and Frisco Leash integrate new Ruffwear-designed hardware and fresh colors, and believe it or not, will stand up to the occasional ocean swim, while looking better and better with age.
The Frisco Collar is Ruffwear’s take on the classic leather collar, while remaining durable and water-resistant. Partnering with Pittards, a company ethically and sustainably supplying performance leather since 1826, the odor-resistant full-grain cowhide leather ages gracefully along with your dog. The all-metal Crux Buckle and D-ring offer security and efficient design. Handcrafted in the UK, the leather collar comes in three colors and retails for $54.95.
Again partnering with Pittards, the Frisco Leash is Ruffwear’s take on the classic leather leash. Full grain, water-resistant cowhide, a glove leather-lined handle for comfortable grip, and the ergonomic Talon Clip make this 4-foot leash great for taking your stylish dog for a walk on the town. Available in three colors to match the Frisco Collar, this handcrafted leash retails for $99.95.
In addition to the new leather collection–those that live in particularly wet and muddy environments will appreciate the new Headwater Leash to compliment the popular water proof Headwater Collar (which will be updated for spring). This new waterproof coated webbing leash keeps grunge and water out and cleans with ease. The Ruffwear-designed Talon Clip is strong, secure and ergonomically designed for one-handed use, while the four-foot length keeps your dog close. The Headwater Leash will retail for $39.95 and start shipping around February along with the new leather accessories.
