“Each collar is a tool of self-expression & individualism. The resulting collection is highly personal yet charged with an energy and statement that is meant to be shared.” – StyLeash
For years we have been looking for the right collar and leash for our Mini Australian Shepherd Benji. He is our one and only and just like most dog owners, nothing could ever be good enough for him. We wanted something unique, something specially designed for him with his name, style and colours.
In addition to being stylish, it also had to be sturdy, functional, and suitable for adventure dogs. We hike, we swim, we do dog sports and he loves to play with other dogs. So we needed a collar that we could easily throw in the washing machine after our outdoor activities (that’s why all products can be washed at 30 degrees).
We wanted the best possible for Benji, but at the same time we all love animals. Not just pets. It seemed immoral to us to let Benji wear fancy accessories for which another animal was injured or even killed. Another requirement was that the collar had to be vegan without having to compromise on quality or design options. We didn’t find anything that lived up to our expectations.
It was Benji’s birthday and we decided to make him the most special, unique and exclusive collar and leash to go with it. We tried out many carabiners, buckles, pendants and types of artificial leather until we finally found the perfect combination of materials for us. Since we never intended to sell a single collar, we didn’t think about the economic aspect. After working on it for a few weekends, the perfect collar was finally born. Soon our friends asked us to make one for their dog; then friends of friends, and so the story of StyLeash began … a story of stylish and high-quality dog accessories, handmade in Switzerland.
