What's so great about HEMP?


We'd like to spell it out for you.


​While Nylon and Polypropolene webbing are very strong, and are therefore common materials used to make dog collars and leashes, HEMP is becoming increasingly more popular because of its natural qualities.

During a time when many people are more focused on helping out the earth in every little way the can, we have discovered the natural benefits of using hemp as an alternative to synthetic webbing.


Here are some of it's strong points:


  • The hemp plant is a very fast growing crop, producing high fiber yield per acre
  • ​Hemp leaves the soil in excellent condition, preserving topsoil, preventing erosion, and allowing other crops to grow where it has been grown
  • Hemp requires no pesticides, crowds out weeds without herbicides
  • ​Hemp is a renewable resource
  • It is a high quality and extremely durable fibre


These are all fantastic benefits for the Earth. So here's what's in it for your dog:


  • Hemp is an exceptionally stong fibre
  • It is a high quality and extremely durable fibre
  • Hemp is more absorbent and mildew resistant than synthetic fibers
  • 100% Biodegradable
  • ​Hemp Resists odors
  • ​It is a hypoallergenic fibre (ideal for dogs with skin sensitivites!)
  • Hemp offers a unique and natural appearance
  • The fabric breathes well and is great for hot climates
  • Hemp is UV resistent
