The maritime industry requires a high longevity and quality. We aim to provide products with the same Quality and durability. We only use leather from certified sources (e.g., ecco™ leather) to make sure that the fabric is of good quality and animal-friendly. The thread in the collars is also used in sail equipment to ensure durability and high quality.
Most collars contain nickel based hardware. In case of you have an allergy to nickel, we at Dutchcollar offer different materials such as brass or stainless steel (AISI 316/ EN 1.4401).

Dutchcollar has it's own policy to reduce it's impact on the world. This does not only limit itself to efficient cutting of the materials, but also recycling of packaging materials, adjustment of building heating and choices on materials.
We use high quality materials to help reduce the impact on the climate. We buy our leather from sustainable sources, once the hide is recovered, the rest of the animal is used for other purposes, nothing get wasted.
Vegan? or animal free options? We offer an variety of eco-friendly materials such as Dinamica. A material made from a combination of recycled Synthetic shirts and PET bottles. Or Kill-Kenny a natural mix of cotton and linen that is treated with non toxic chemicals and still heat resistant to 1000 degrees but cleverly combining different natural fibres and waving the fabric.
We limit the amount of spray glues use and make sure we don't waste to much toxic glues. When possible we use glues made from bones or plant fibres. (Glues made from bones are only used with leather and thus will not touch any animal-free/Vegan products)
