It all started in 2010 on a visit to Leeds Castle in Kent, UK. Hidden in the outbuildings of the castle was a dog collar museum; this was such an unexpected delight! Even though I've always been a dog lover, I've never really paid much attention to dog collars. It all changed during this visit as I realised that a good dog collar, apart from its functionality, is an expression of the owner's love and pride.
About 3-4 years later we've adopted Jesse, an English Pointer, through GSP Rescue South Africaand she very quickly became the centre of our lives. I wanted to buy her a nice leather collar as the ones we've bought never lasted long. I couldn't find anything nice locally and ordered one from the USA.This collar was a good choice as it could withstand swimming in dams and rolling in mud and still looked good after cleaning and polishing it.
In 2016 I completed a leather work course and started making dog collars, amongst other things. Point Leather was born with Jesse featuring in the logo.
It gives me so much pleasure to make the collars and see the happiness it brings to dog owners. Every dog deserves a nice collar!
