Tribal dog collar part 2

Here’s part 2 of our newly created custom leather dog collar with an American tribal style design. Extra thick for a fantastic look and superior strength.  If these collars pique your interest know that you can choose the colors of your choice and get to fit your pet exactly. There’s no sense in buying a collar that’s too small or large… when you can have an exact fit. I strive for perfection in every facet on every collar.

Be part of your pets creative custom tooled leather collar.

Applying stitch grooves recesses the thread or cord to almost the same height as the main body equalling stitches that last decades. Above is a double stitch groove. One groove going the length for my standard protocol and the other is an embellishment. The shoe glue I utilize is referred as a nail less glue. I hand stitch to guarantee strength and endurance of layers.

Each collar is created with safety, comfort and style in mind.
High quality in every facet is what’s used during the whole creative process. Starting with saddle skirting leather main body shoe glued to vegetable tanned leather liners. Hours of hand tooling, edges beveled, stitch grooved, hand stitched with waxed linen or wound cord thread. Airbrushed spirit dyes, hand dying and painting spirit dye and acrylics. Edges burnished to perfection to appear acrylic likeness. The buckles are Solid Brass, nickle over Solid Brass, Stainless Steel and Sterling Silver upon request.
It’s been a journey being self-taught. After 25 yrs I daily strive to be better with every piece I create and fully open to critiques, ideas and yearn for information imperative to create heirloom pieces. My desire to create is found in each piece, executed with all the skill and passion I possess in search of perfection.

Hello Lawrence Carter here at Across Leather Studio in New Castle DE US. This is in the beginning stages to roughly half way through. Two straps of leather are glued together. One being Saddle skirting leather and the liner side would be vegetable tanned leather. They’re glued together wet, stuffed in a bag and let set over night.

Next day take out of bag let outside return to it’s normal color. Place template of images onto leather and proceed to cut using swivel knife. Then tool.
