Dog owners resemble their breeds of choice, or so the adage goes. With such symbiosis in play, it makes sense to match a pet’s collar to the person. Maxwell Dog in studio city offers these perfect fits.
For the Pop Culturalist
Santa Barbara-based GREEN BEAN DOG stitches patterned textiles bearing hearts, anchors, stars, waves, and other warm and fuzzy images into hemp backing. We fell for the Hopisque sunbursts ($22-$25).
For the Millennial
The cool designs by Brooklyn-based SHED are screen-printed by hand onto fair-trade hemp webbing with nontoxic water-based inks ($30-$34). Its customers wouldn’t have it any other way.
For the Socially Conscious
Chamula women in Chiapas, Mexico, weave the nylon collars for SEIBA, a Bell Canyon enterprise founded to aid endangered indigenous communities. Your outlay for this one-of-a-kind item? $110
For the Sophisticate
Semiprecious stones and other elegant bling embellish the collars by Roddy and Soo Novotny of RN DESIGN. Made by hand in West Hollywood, some might set you back $130 or so (but Rex looks great in gems)
