We are in the fortunate position of having some wonderful friends who keep an eye out for fabrics for us, this is one of those "found" fabrics - and a little bit special as it turns out! After doing a little research on the name on the selvedge edge of this fabric we discovered it's from one of "the" Italian designer fabric houses that supply the likes of Valentino and Chanel, oh and now Silver Peacock!
The fabric itself is the highest quality 100% Silk Crepe, printed in the most amazing detail with scroling designs in teal, turquoise, greens, gold, taupe and navy. Each collar made will be totally unique and will vary in colour from one side to the other due to the change in the design across the fabric / collar. The silk is tricky to work so there will only be a limited number of these collars available. The collar is lined in Dijon yellow fabric and finished with our robust signature silver coloured hardware. The martingale has a teal webbing section.
This design would also be suitable for a tiny collar or co-ordinating Ultimate lead.
Being 100% silk this collar should be saved for special occasions - this is the Hermes scarf of the collar world!
The Standard sized Martingale collar is available in 2 widths: 4cm (1 ½") or 5cm (2") deep and is adjustable from 28cm (11") up to 43cm (17"), with an additional 7cm (3") in the webbing section to allow for easy fitting. This collar is the ideal size for larger dog breeds (i.e. Larger Lurchers, Deerhound, greyhound, saluki).
The Small sized Martingale collar again is available in 2 widths: 4cm (1 ½") or 5cm (2") and adjusts from approx 22cm (9") up to 32cm (13") again with the additional 7cm (3") in the webbing section . This collar is the ideal size for smaller hounds (i.e. Whippets, and smaller Lurchers).
