The colors of this collar represent the lifecycle of the Phoenix
In the Highlands of Chiapas, Mexico, the collar's vibrant textile is hand woven by female artisans using the Maya technique "Trenzado a Mano". Each intricately woven textile requires 4-7 hours to complete. Leather artisans finish the collar by cutting water-resistant latigo leather and sewing it to the textile. The D-ring and buckle are ultra-strong, brass-finished steel. The collar features a padded leather interior for the comfort of your dog and a special ring for the ID tag.
