This beautiful design has been crafted for the little starlet in your family. Nyo, meaning “Star”, is based on a beautiful diamond arrangement an looks fabulous in all our colour waves.
The collars are hand-stitched by the Maasai Mama’s in enkangs (Maasai village of family homes) in the countryside surrounding Nairobi. The premium quality leather is sourced from a local tannery. The buckle and D-ring are also fabricated nearby using hot rolled reclaimed brass.
We are passionate about handmade products and every aspect of these unique collars are carried out by skilled craftspeople from Kenya. Not only is every collar totally unique but each one directly contributes to creating a better future for all involved through financial stability.

Sizes and Measuring your Hound:
Length measurements are given in inches.
All of our collars have 5 holes. The “length” is the measurement from the central hole to the leather at the buckle end; this should correspond with the measurement of your dogs neck. Sizes are in 2 inch intervals, starting at 10″ and going up to 24″. If your dog is in between 2 sizes we suggest you chose the size closest to the length you require, if the measurement is exactly in the middle of 2 sizes we recommend you select the smaller size as the collars will stretch slightly. If at all worried please send us an email and we can advise.
Please note that as these collars are all individually hand made the lengths can vary by up to 1/2″ in either direction.
