This listing is for a leather lead with a tweed handle, we have only five ready-made available.

  • ‘Tan’ with brass hardware, light tan stitching and a ‘Kilchoman’ tweed handle,

This was the very first tweed we chose to make into leads and collars and its still a favourite of mine.

Woven on the beautiful island of Islay at the Islay Woollen Mill where a very small team are still using traditional weaving methods. We love to use Islay Tweed in our products as the quality is exceptional,

Named Kilchoman after the famous whiskey distillery also on the Island.

Handmade by us, from full-grain, heavy-duty, vegetable-tanned leather. This lead looks and feels special and is great for town and country style.

The C&T Leather Dog Lead features:

  • High-quality, heavy-duty hardware.
  • Handmade, by us, from scratch.
  • Saddle-stitched by hand for ultimate durability.

We recommend pairing your new lead with either a C&T Leather Collar or one of our Tweed Collars.

Product Details

Unlike most mass-produced leather goods, this is designed and made to last. The full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather is coated with a  protective layer and treated still further with C&T Leather Balm before being sent out to you.

Each lead is painstakingly hand-stitched using a proven heritage technique called “saddle stitching”. This is done entirely by hand, and produces an incredibly strong stitch. Unlike a “lock stitch” produced by a sewing machine, where the item may start to come apart if the thread is broken in even just one place, a saddle-stitched item is much stronger. A single break in the thread will not usually allow the item to come apart, as two complete threads in a continuous figure of eight hold the parts together.

Care

The lead is treated with a leather balm that aids its ability to repel water. This does not make the lead “waterproof”.

If the lead does become wet, allow it to dry slowly somewhere cool and dry. Wipe or brush dry to remove dog hair or dried dirt, then with a damp cloth to remove any residual dirt. Treat with a leather balm such as C&T Leather Balm to restore a balance of moisture and oils to the leather.

Immersion in water will shorten the life of the lead and is not recommended.

Periodically apply C&T Leather Balm by hand to keep the leather soft, moist and supple.
