Nautical rope leashes for adopted pooches from Foundmyanimal.com

When the connection occurs between a rescue dog and their rescuer a long search ends with both of them being found. This was the spirit behind Anna Conway’s FoundmyAnimal.com.

When Anna went on a trip to Massachusetts with her adopted pup she realized she did not have a leash. Luckily her brother-in-law (a local fisherman) whipped her up a simple yet effective nautical rope leash. Since then the leash design has stayed true to it’s nautical roots – with the addition of a gorgeous brass tag that is individually numbered for each leash created.

The leash’s design is unique in it’s stylish use of old-school rope braiding and splicing while it also solves the vegan dog owner’s leather leash crisis by eschewing animal based materials altogether. The earthy bronze tones (so hot right now!) of both rope and hardware share a similar palette to Marc Jacobs recent runway collections. With this much old-world craftsmanship (the leashes are still hand-whipped by rope artisans in Massachusetts) and style – it was little surprise to find the Found Leash available at the super-hip Earnest Sewn concept store in downtown Manhattan.

The Found leash is available to purchase directly from the Foundmyanimal.com shop in 4 sizes (S-XL) ranging in price from $50-$56. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Louis Animal Foundation an excellent mobile vet clinic tasked with directly impacting animal over-population by offering spay and neuter services to underserved rural areas.


Embossed leather collars designed by Veuch and Kappachan

Those cool kids over at Kappachan have done it again! Teaming up with Brussels-based underground artist Veuch they have taken a unique approach to the classic skull and bones icon. These collars are constructed of fine grade saddle leather embossed with Veuch’s electrified Skull with crossed swords. Available in Large and Extra Large – shorties need not apply – these designs are available in a warm cognac brown leather and a matte black leather. Currently they are available to purchase online directly from Kappachan in France and if you want to save on the International shipping they are slated to be carried at LA’s latest pet super boutique Pussy & Pooch.


Paul Smith Striped Lead & Collar

The famous Paul Smith colorful stripes pattern on your pooch. With a very long run in the “hot” category the famous Paul Smith multi-color stripes have shown up all over the place – from footballs to Mini Coopers. And finally the famous stripes are showing up on dog accesories. The Paul Smith Leather Lead is offered in two styles – one with perpendicular stripes and another with diagonal stripes. While the perpendicular stripes look fine on The Dog Collar – we really prefer to pair it with the diagonal striped Lead. I don’t know what it is but the length of the Straight Striped Lead gives it a Guatemalan woven belt look that is not quite the look you are going for…


Super-stylin’ classic collar designs from luxe designers Patch & Scott

As true dog luxe mavens know the leash and collar marketplace is full of half-stepping attempts at luxury; $200 for a nylon weave collar with a bad Fleur de Lis print and silver painted plastic buckles? I dont think so…

So it is refreshing to see a label take it back to the basics and focus on luxury. Patch & Scott have taken the basic collar & leash and elevated it by customizing the buckles and other hardware accents and using only finest leathers available. The Amalfi (shown at right) collar & leash set is available in Chocolate or Tan calf leather and comes complete with a name tag and gift box. While it will not be setting any streetwear trends with it’s classic looks the high quality workmanship and materials will definitely merit a second look. The Amalfi sets are available to purchase directly from the designer ranging in price depending on size from (£69-£84) and the matching lead goes for (£98).

Retractable leash makers are finally catching a whiff of the high design trend; you might sell a lot more of these indespensible leashes if they coordinate with Mommy’s spring flip-flops.
