Leather vs Biothane SHOWDOWN

biothane collars leather material showdown

Biothane and leather are two popular materials used for making dog collars, leashes, and harnesses. In this blog image is a collar made by Collar & Ruff that features a bright teal Biothane top layer on a supple black leather base. Whilst the two go hand in hand usage-wise, here are some of the differences between the two:

Material: Biothane is a synthetic material made of polyester webbing coated with PVC, while leather is a natural material made from animal hides.

Durability: Biothane is known for being extremely durable and resistant to water, dirt, and other outdoor elements, while leather can be susceptible to water damage and may require regular conditioning to maintain its suppleness.

Maintenance: Biothane is easy to clean with soap and water and does not require any special care or maintenance, while leather may need to be conditioned regularly to prevent cracking and drying out.

Appearance: Leather has a classic, timeless look that many dog owners appreciate, while biothane can have a more modern or sporty appearance.

Cost: Biothane is generally less expensive than leather, although the exact cost will depend on factors such as the quality of the materials and the complexity of the design.

Ultimately, the choice between biothane and leather will depend on your personal preferences and needs. If you prioritize durability and ease of maintenance, biothane may be the better choice for you, while if you value the classic appearance and natural feel of leather, then leather may be the way to go.
