About RUHA Leather

RUHA leather is 100% full grain, vegetable tanned cowhide, the most eco-friendly way to tan leather. This process leaves the leather free from harmful toxic chemicals in compliance with California and US Environmental Regulations.

I have to admit, I didn't know too much about leather or tanning leather prior to this article so I did a little research and here is what I found out:

About Grains & Tanning:

Full-Grain Leather: The term refers to hides that have not been sanded, buffed, or snuffed to remove any of the imperfections or natural marks from the surface of the hide. The grain remains, allowing the fiber strength and durability. The grain is also breathable, resulting in less moisture from prolonged contact. Rather than wearing out, full-grain leather develops a patina over time.

Tanning Leather: The tanning process is what transforms the hides and skins into leather. The 2 main types of tanning are chrome and vegetable tanning.

  • Chrome tanning uses a solution of chemicals, acids and salts to dye the hide. It's quick and easy to produce so it's cheaper to make. That being said it's not good for the environment, it often smells of chemicals, it doesn't wear well with time, and the final product lacks the warmth and charm expected of leather goods.
  • Vegetable tanning, on the other hand, is an age old tradition and usually only very skilled craftsmen produce and dye the leather. The ingredients used are those found in different vegetable matter, such as tree bark prepared in bark mills, wood, leaves, fruits and roots and other similar sources. Vegetable tanning takes a long time and more skill, using traditional craftsmen techniques that are mostly done by hand. And while vegetable tanned products are a bit more expensive, they're definitely worth it. Vegetable tanned leather is far superior, will last longer and is natural. They will actually improve with age and develop a beautiful patina over time.

So you can see that vegetable tanning is the way to go.

Leather Care: RUHA recommends Lexol Leather Cleaner and Conditioner to maintain the beauty and durability of their leather goods.

Colors: Ruha dog collars are made from one piece of leather that is finished on the back side with the same color as the full grain, front side. They offer 3 colors: Red, Tan and Vintage White.

Laser Precision: A laser beam permanently engraves the collar's design, dog's name and contact information into the leather. Then, the same laser beam cuts out the holes and collar. The laser beam is 1/1000 of an inch in diameter, making the holes and engraving precise.

Hardware: Another great feature of RUHA dog collars is they don't use any stitching or glue, so there are no worries of your dog's collar fraying or coming apart from wear over time. Instead RUHA uses rust resistant nickel-plated steel hardware for their rivets, buckles and D-rings. It is strong, sturdy and very durable.

Personalize It: RUHA Leather utilizes laser engraving to permanently and beautifully identify your dog's name on the collar. And if you like you can also add your contact information eliminating the need for dangling ID tags.

RUHA also creates beautiful key fobs, bag tags, wrist bands and signs. 

RUHA dog collars are durable yet gentle, and, if well maintained, can stand the test of time.
