All of Lagarto's leather products are made using materials that are by-product of the food industry. No animals were raised specifically for their hair or hide. Lagarto only builds with the hides of herbivores, including buffalo, cow, deer, elk, and rabbit. Lagarto will not use the hides of omnivores or carnivores like pigs, reptiles, vulpines, and others.
The leather used is the finest available in the world - supplied by the best and most reliable tanneries. It is purchased as entire hides (or sides), and is precisely cut for use in the finished products available here. Range marks and scars are left out as scrap, so your pieces are perfect.
Because some people have allergies to Nickel and nickel finished metal hardware, ALL collars and cuffs have interiors that are all leather - No metal will touch your skin from any rivets. Some of Lagarto's earlier pieces have a pair of exposed rivets at the buckle. If you have one of these old pieces, exposed rivets will be covered or replaced at no cost to you if you send it in or bring it by the dealer table. Stainless steel hardware is used for all new builds, including buckles, rings, and D-rings - so if you have sensitivity to Nickel, no need to worry!
Do you want a crazy color for your collar? Do you need to match an exact swatch of fur for your cuffs? Then how about chap? What is CHAP LEATHER? Simple - it's a soft and medium thickness leather used for chaps - those things cowboys wear over their jeans to protect their front upper legs. Unlike Latigo leather, Chap leather is somewhat stretchy. It makes a fine strap if you don't put a lot of stress on it. What is the advantage of chap over latigo? NONE, except it is available in EVERY COLOR YOU CAN IMAGINE. So, if you desire something really unique, choose chap and ask me about colors. The list is long. I don't have many colors on hand. Any color not listed below needs to be ordered. This will take an extra week or so and add that much time to your order completion. If you require the durability of latigo but want the color of chap, I can bond chap to latigo and make a double thick strap. This is labor intensive, though, so it will cost you an extra $10 per strap if you want a double. If I make you a double, it can be with any of the latigo colors in the drop down list. Specify in the notes for your order that you want a double, and choose the color or I will use black. I will manually re-price your order before you are billed.
