Made from Italian, vegetable tanned leather chosen for its superior quality and low environmental impact. The leather has been processed without the use of harsh chemicals and has been pigmented using vegetable based dyes.

Adding to Cheshire & Wain’s current range of luxury collars, the new ‘Colour-Pop’ collar comes in a choice of six contemporary shades. The design is complete with solid brass hardware, contrasting leather lining, brass bell and breakaway buckle. Cheshire & Wain is currently the only company to offer leather cat collars with a ‘breakaway’ safety feature.

Cheshire & Wain collars are made in small batches in London. Priced at approximately $58 USD. An I.D tag engraving service is available from approximately $16.60 USD. One size: 19-25cms (9.8-7.4”)

Cheshire & Wain specialise in distinctive cat collars made from high quality components and leather. Incorporating a discreet breakaway buckle, their collars are designed to be aesthetically pleasing as well as safe and appropriate for the cats they have been designed for.

The company was launched in 2013 by Sonja Farrell (25) who felt disappointed with what was available in the way of high quality collars for cats. Seeing a gap in the global pet market, Sonja set out to design a cat collar that was functional as well as beautifully made. The current range of collars, collar charms, I.D tags and organic catnip toys will grow as new products are sourced, designed and manufactured to the highest possible standard.
