Bespoke and made-to-order cat collars from Cheshire & Wain

Cheshire & Wain launched in 2013 with our founding product: a luxury leather cat collar incorporating a breakaway safety buckle where other companies use elastic. We were frustrated and concerned about the lack of high quality cat collars available that were actually safe for cats to wear and so we decided to do some more digging. During our research we read some horror stories about elasticated collars injuring cats and we didn't find one leather cat collar which used a breakaway catch as its safety feature. There was only one thing for it: we decided to design one from scratch ourselves!

Over the last two years we have sent Cheshire & Wain luxury collars to cats all over the world, we have named a collar range after some of our fancy feline clientele and we have been commissioned to make one-off bespoke cat collars. Not all our customers know that we offer this service so the following article gives more information about getting an extra special collar made to your specifications. 

Below are some examples of bespoke collars we have made for fancy felines.

1 & 2. Cream leather collar with natural suede lining and 24 carat gold plated heart ID tag - script style engraving to Romeo.

3. Purple leather collar with matching purple stitching, un-dyed leather lining for Sparky. 

4. Rose-gold metallic, flecked leather with suede lining and silver hardware for Eve.

5. Caviar grain leather with burgundy suede lining and 24 carat gold-plated fish ID tag for Ghost. 

6. Embossed orange leather with burgundy suede, silver hardware and contrasting white stitching for Marmaduke.
