    This collar is perfect! Arrived super quickly and is super soft but feels really strong. So, so well-made. I love it! 💙

    This is so great. I ordered it a bit longer to feel more necklace than collar to ease back into wearing one, and i couldn’t be happier it’s solid and beautifully made. I also asked to upgrade my shipping last minute to accommodate an event i wanted to attend and was met with quick response and accommodation. so happy to be wearing queer made leather goods!

    High quality leather, but I'm pretty disappointed with my experience with the shop. I ordered mid-January because the shop owner advertised that they had the item in stock. It didn't ship until ten days later, and only after I contacted them. I'm not expecting Amazon-level speed, but shipping out over a week late-it would have been nice to receive a head's up.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

I make each harness to your measurements. There is no extra charge for larger pieces.

Care instructions

Care for your leather harness like you would care for a good pair of boots. I use Huberd's Shoe Grease or Shoe Oil (because it's decently cheap and I love the smell - it's like woodsmoke and beeswax). The leather will soak up whatever it comes in contact with: the oil from your skin and the heat of your body will gradually cause the leather to form to your shape. Oil it as often as you like (I like to do so at least once a month) and wipe it down with a soft cloth.

For better advice I'd suggest contacting a bootblack near you!

Taking my own measurements

If you have questions about what measurements I need from you, please send me a message! I'll talk you through it or we can set up a call on facetime to make sure I get the information I need.

Custom and personalized orders

I love collaborating with clients to design something custom that suits their needs.

If you're interested in a custom design, be prepared to 1) pay a little extra for the labor of designing your piece, 2) tell me what you want it to look like (pictures of similar things or sketches are helpful), 3) know what color, weight, and hardware type you want.

You don't have to have everything figured out, but the more information you can give me the better! Send me a message and we'll start talking about design.
