Kona is a pooch here in the Lower Mainland of BC who's keeper wanted a stylin' new collar with their contact info. Normally I'd use a heavier leather for a collar but I didn't have a piece large enough to cut a ~30" strap out of. So I cut a ~60" strap of a lighter leather and laminated it down to itself. It took longer to produce this way but it should be a stronger collar for all that stitching. I don't make many collars but I might start using this approach more often.
