It’s just two humans, two dogs, and two sewing machines at California-based Mattie & Margot. But this small operation is producing big-time style with their handmade collars available in over 150 colors and patterns. Yes, you read that right. ONE HUNDRED FIFTY COLORS AND PATTERNS. Sorry to shout, but that kind of selection just blows my mind!
There’s plenty more to love about Mattie & Margot, of course, and we were fortunate enough to try out a few of their collars. Read on to hear what Wrigley and Smash think, and snag a special coupon code, too!
[Disclosure: Wrigley and Smash were sent collars for review by Mattie & Margot. All views and opinions are our own.]
Like I mentioned above, each of these stylish collars is available in over 150 colors and patterns (this fact is still blowing my mind), with the option to buy a coordinating, 5-foot leash as well. You can choose your favorite color/pattern in either the Standard width (1 inch) or Mini (5/8 inch), which accommodate neck sizes anywhere from 8 to 21 inches. Wrigley and Smash sprung for “Sea Mist” (in standard and mini) and “Ansi Yellow“.
When the collars arrived, I was immediately impressed with the quality of materials: each one is made from premium ribbon, nylon webbing (in your choice of black or brown), and die-cast metal hardware. The hardware itself is some of the best I’ve seen; these hefty buckles could probably survive Armageddon — and then double as blunt weapons in the post-apocalyptic world. For real.
Another little detail my modernist heart fell for was this:
The Mattie & Margot logo is on the inside. So, whatever color or pattern you choose stands out without any distracting/seamless-design-ruining tags. I LOVE THAT.
Other than incredible good looks, durable construction, and high quality materials (what more could you ask for, really?), Mattie & Margot collars have a few other things going for them: an awesome recycling option (mail in your dog’s old collar and get a new one for 30% off) and a collar-of-the-month program (a color or pattern is chosen as the “collar of the month” and all proceeds from the sale of that collar go to a non-profit animal organization or rescue — how cool is that?).
