People meet in unusual ways. For Sharon and Lalo, it was inside a dim factory in midtown Manhattan. Together, they created Around the Collar, a New York based company dedicated to making high quality pet accessories.
Sharon thanks her knowledge gained from her many years employed as a ladies accessories designer, along with her education from the Fashion Institute of Technology to design unique and stylish collars, leashes, harnesses and carriers. Made with the finest quality leather, Crystallized Swarovski stones and construction details made possible from her partner and husband, Lalo. Born and raised in Columbia, South America he learned his craft at a young age from his family. His mother was a highly skilled seamstress and his father a tailor. Creating a pattern, figuring out proper sizing and getting the best yield from a skin of leather is second nature to him. Details are always a priority to Around the Collar.
Years have gone by and the stories shared from various dog and cat owners are often quite personal. They are often thrilled to finally get a product that will last and look so stylish at the same time. The leather color options allow you to have fun. Bubble Gum, Pistachio, Cotton Candy, naming just a few to select from. The collars and harnesses are all lined with leather and the edges are painted to provide a totally finished product.
Their goal is to keep “your best friend” comfortable and in high fashion at the same time, and based on the samples we received, they have more than achieved that goal. These collars are, simply put, the finest luxury dog collars we’ve ever laid eyes on. Uncompromising construction is the foundation for timeless designs. We’ll be back to buy more, and that’s the strongest possible endorsement you’ll find anywhere: we’re buried in free collars from dozens of companies.
