stick a fork in us, we’re done! | strong leather dog collars

December 20, 2017

Head over to our Facebook page if you want to see this ridiculous video starring our helpful elves ^^^

Our last order of the year is going in the post today and it’s time for the Ruthless Leather workshop to close for our annual break. Dave and our four elves have been very busy and will now enjoy a well earned break. Thank you to everyone who’s supported us in 2017 – be it by shopping with us or by always recommending us to anyone with a dog – YOU ROCK! We hope you and your pack all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year. See you in 2018!

Cheers,
Ruth [+ Dave + Angel + Chopper + Trixie + Bruno]

There are captions under each photo in the gallery. Click a thumbnail below to open and then use your arrow keys to scroll through.

Dog #4 was off hunting skinks and flies. Just in case you were wondering!

What exactly is “genuine leather”?

August 30, 2015

ruthlessleather-LR-8569

All of our products are handcrafted from high-quality bridle leather. That’s why you’ll never see us refer to our goods as “genuine leather”.

Genuine leather doesn’t just mean that the product is made of real leather (which it is), but it also means it is the lowest quality of all products made out of real leather.

Genuine leather generally doesn’t last as long or look as nice as higher-quality leather. You’ll typically find it in belts and shoes from lower-priced chain stores and bags or other goods in the lower-leather price range.

Goods marked as genuine leather will be several layers of low quality leather bonded together with glue and then painted to look like a better-quality leather. It’s what is left over when the other, higher grades are stripped away.

This grade of leather is acceptable if you’re just buying something cheaply and don’t care too much about its quality. It won’t last very long and, if you care about your dog’s safety, products made from it should be avoided.

then until now | strong leather dog collars

This has been a long time coming … a dedicated Ruthless Leather blog! No more sharing with Ruthless Photos. I was going to transfer all the old blog posts over here but then I remembered they’re all 200px smaller in width since the Ruthless Photos blog redesign and I’d need to resave all the images. So yeah, nah! You can still read them all here though, if you’re so inclined.

And because blog posts are much more pleasing to the eye with a photo, here’s Ody the French Bulldog wearing the first ever RocknRolla made with coloured decorations. He’s doing some sterling test driving for us.
