All Northern Moods collars and leashes are made entirely by hand in their very own factory.
It is their mission to perfect old world techniques and create pieces that exceed mass-production quality.
The materials used are of the best quality available. The cowhide is top full grain leather tanned in the south of the Netherlands. The python leather is tanned and dyed in Italy. The ostrich leather is tanned and dyed in the Netherlands.
Every NorthernMoods collar can be ordered with a matching leash.
Please read the sizing guide before placing your order as not all manufacturers sizes are the same.
SIZING: It is extremely important that you know what your dog's neck size is. Please take the time to properly measure his or her neck.
To measure the size of your four-footed friend take a measuring tape and place it around your dog's neck placing the width of two fingers (not flat but pointing out like a scissors) between the tape and the neck. You can also use a piece of string and measure the length of the string on a ruler.
If your dog's neck measures 35cm, (13.5 inches) the collar size you should order is 37cm (14.5 inches) which is adjustable to between 32cm (12.5 inches) and 40cm (15.5 inches). Always order UP a size. Collars are adjustable.
PRODUCT CARE: Your new luxury leather NorthernMoods collar will last longer when it is treated correctly. As Leather is a natural product, it may be subject to natural variation in colour and texture.
NorthernMoods' products have been designed, manufactured and tested specifically for everyday use. They are not meant as a means of restraining your dog or for training purposes.
Below are a few guidelines, which will help extend the life of your collar:
Cowhide: To clean the cowhide collar, use a soft cloth, slightly dampened with good quality leather cream. Allow to dry completely before lightly brushing or buffing with a soft cloth. This helps to moisturise the leather and prevent cracking or creasing. Always ensure the product is dry before applying leather cream. We would recommend only using natural and where possible hypoallergenic products on Northern Moods premium cowhide collars.
Python/Ostrich: To clean a python or ostrich leather collar, use a soft cloth, slightly dampened with water. Do not use a lot of water to clean the collar, as this may damage the leather and/or the color of the leather.
Don't: Use coloured or liquid polish applicators on fine leather, as this can contain chemicals that can destroy natural leather and could be harmful to your dog’s coat and skin.
If the leather collar becomes wet, allow it to dry naturally, never dry near a direct heat source.
