Marie Jordaan went to school for interior design, but never felt that was her calling. She then discovered a love for leather when she entered a shoe-making academy.

Her dog, Moes, has had a dramatic impact on her life, and after searching for just the right collars to suit Moes’ personality, Marie decided to make some for her. Marie only uses leather in her collars and leashes so that they are strong and durable. The floral collar, pictured above features an oversized flower that actually comes off.
