The K-9 Komfort deluxe leather products are made from the finest cowhide leathers from the Northern regions of the U.S. making them thicker and more durable than others. All deluxe leather products have an English Bridle Leather finish giving them consistent color, pliability and a soft non-oily feel. Proper leather stitching consisting of 8 or more lock stitches per inch is used on all deluxe leather products. By avoiding any cross-grain stitching, the strength and integrity of the leather is not compromised therefore resulting in a stronger, longer lasting product. All leather edges have a hard finish and K-9 Komfort uses only the best quality solid brass hardware available.
