Beautiful collar! It's so well-made and really comfortable too. It came packaged up so nicely, I would have been happy to give it as a gift. Plus I love how all the packaging was recyclable!

This was the second of two collars we ordered our dog Lacey. Beautiful colors in this fabric! Another very nicely constructed collar, just like the first. I will definitely order more of these in other fabrics to add to our collection for our well dressed pup!

Well-made collar, very soft to the touch and won't irritate our dog's neck (she has very short fur and collars can rub it off if rough). Beautiful fabric! We ordered the 1" size for our 45 lb dog and it looks perfect on her. Thanks again!

About

Eco-Friendly Dog Products, Handmade in San Diego.

I started making eco-friendly collars for dogs in 2006. Although there are a lot of collars in the world, I could not find cute, eco-friendly versions. As an environmental scientist, I was not interested in synthetic collars. So I decided on hemp (with all of its awesome properties) and made one for my golden retriever. He’s a beach dog that would rather live in the ocean than on land. His pack includes a dachshund, two black labs, and a little maltese…all of which field-test new designs and fabrics. He's a happy boy.

I got my start selling at my local farmer’s markets in San Diego, which was an amazing experience. It allowed me to solicit real-time feedback, measure and fit collars for so many dog breeds, and grow from the support of my community. Although I no longer sell at the farmer’s markets, I still feel tied to the market community after spending so many years there.

Now I focus on selling online, in local stores, and wholesale across the globe. Handmade Green is still located in San Diego, California, USA, where all of our products are made. Our line of products includes the original hemp collars, leashes, vintage elevated feeders (when I can find the materials), and special wholesale collections.

Our collars are made using strong and sustainable hemp webbing, cotton fabrics, and quality hardware. The durable construction and leather rivets set our handmade collars apart from the rest of the pack.

Throughout the year, our profits benefit many pet organizations, including Guide Dogs for the Blind, the Barking Lot, SPCA, and other rescue groups throughout the year.

Hello, welcome to my shop. I make quality, unique items for your dogs...collars, leashes, and elevated feeders. Our products are truly eco-friendly, and I use recycled wood, hemp webbing, cotton cloth, and ceramic to make items that you'll enjoy for years. Treat yourself, your pet, or your favorite pet owner to a beautiful new gift.

Scientifically speaking, cultivation of hemp and cotton require 10-20 times less energy than creating synthetic materials like nylon and polypropylene. More importantly, hemp is great for dogs with sensitive skin and allergies. It's naturally antibacterial, undyed, and unbleached.

I always use the best I can find, and at prices competitive with the big pet chains. No prison labor, child labor, sweatshops, sketchy business practices, underhanded dealings, or weird stuff of any kind here. Just honest handmade items.

Please measure your dog's carefully to ensure a good fit. Each one is made custom for your pet and it is very helpful to us to limit returns. Let us know the exact measurement and we will allow extra room for comfort.
