Customers tell us these are the highest quality and most unique beaded collars they have ever seen. The beading is done by Maasai "mamas" working in their home area. By meeting with their designer weekly to receive materials, the artisans can earn a living while maintaining their rural and more traditional lifestyle. Averaging one collar per day, the mamas create these original, one-of-a-kind designs. Beads are hand sewn in leather, then an overlay of leather is glued and stitched on the back. Buckles are solid, hand-cast brass. Available in a variety of colors, and in three widths: 1/2, 3/4, and 1 inch. Collar lengths are from 8 to 24 inches. Lurcher collars available in 2 inch width and in even lengths from 12 to 20 inches. Leads are 42" long. Leads are not recommend for dogs that pull or for dogs over 50 pounds.
