The Lupine Pet Eco collection features collars and padded handle dog leads made from recycled plastic bottles. In beautiful nature inspired colours, with their unique Jacquard weave two tone weave, the collars are both beautiful and sustainable.
They are are available in three widths, and 4 adjustable size ranges for the collars. There are 3 colours to choose from. We have tested them personally and found, even on an "oily" terrier who rolls in mud, they wash back to "new" in sink or machine.
The Eco lead has an ultra-soft padded handle for comfort while walking even the strongest of pullers.
The collars and leads are hand-made at the Lupine Pet factory in New Hampshire (USA), by a workforce of 75 people. Lupine was founded in 1992 and takes great pride in the high quality of their products. (Read the Lupine story here).
