How Durable & What are the Collars Made of?

♥ The Preppy Owl collars are proudly made from multiple layers of designer cotton fabric that are reinforced with multiple layers of interfacing for stability. The layers are all stitched together using a commercial sewing machine & reinforced stitching at each stress point.

Caring for your new collar or leash and using it as directed will make for a longer product life. Since wear on gear can greatly vary based on the dog, it’s best to have multiple collars to swap out routinely. (Plus you get the added benefit of looking fresh collars, will wear faster & more significantly if worn for long periods at a time, washed often or with harsh detergents, or regularly exposed to mud, water, UV, etc.

Will my Items look like the Pictures?

♥ Please note that all items are proudly crafted by hand, to-order, just for you! No two cuts of fabric are ever the same, pattern placement will vary with each collar. We try to match the pictures as close as possible whenever we can. Keep in mind, the smaller the width, the less pattern will show. We ask for your understanding that there will be differences in your collar from what is shown in the photos. Please also be aware that different screens show color differently. We cannot accept returns or exchanges for pattern placement/variation.
