About Us

Hi, I'm Lauren and I am your dog's new fashion consultant. Here's a little bit about how I founded Collar & Ruff and why.

Only wanting the best for my new dog, Roxy. I searched high and low for a durable leather collar that had to tick a lot of boxes, including her personality, while being bespoke and durable.

After hours of searching, I couldn't find what I wanted, so I made my own. I bought terrible leather, cheap studs and even cheaper decorations to learn the ways of leather working.

I made a lot of errors, spent a lot of money and figured things out as I went. My first collar wasn't great.

I experimented further and uncovered sources for top quality leathers and components. I finally made my first proper collar and wanted to make more.

I wanted to make luxury collars for dogs to compliment their special selves.

Since then, every collar has been completely hand made. Leather is measured, cut and punched; edges are beveled, slicked and dyed. Each piece is treated with utmost care, readied for decoration and hardware.

I'm proud to have been Australia's very first custom luxury leather dog gear business.

Sitting at my workbench, creating a design that somebody will love for their dog, is a passion.

And while I am not sitting at my workbench, Roxy, my husband and I love to be active and enjoy spending time on our acreage or hiking through stunning places I draw inspiration from to create luxury dog collars for you.
