Leather

The high quality leathers used by Masimalo are sourced in Scandinavia and vegetable tanned. All of the used tanneries are rated Gold by the Leather Working Group. The Leather Working Group is working internationally to improve traceability and environmental performance in the leather industry.

The leather we use is a by-product of the meat industry, minimizing environmental impact and wastage.

Why we use it:
• Superior durability and strength
• Flexible, becoming more comfortable over time
• Ages beautifully and has a long lifespan
• Bio-degradable

Recycled Webbing

Our webbing is made from RPET, which is 100% recycled Polyester. The RPET comes from post-consumer waste (such as old carpets), and industrial waste. The process of recycling uses less natural resources and energy than regular PET. And the end result? A material that is just as good as virgin PET.

Why we use it:
• Lightweight
• Great durability and strength
• Recycled & recyclable
• Lower CO2 emissions than virgin material (Up to 90% less)

Solid Brass Hardware

All our collars and leashes are fitted with high quality brass hardware for strenght and safety. Brass is made from copper and zinc, and has been used and loved for centuries due to its great workability and characteristics.

Why we use it:
• Wear resistant
• High strength
• Corrosion resistant
• Great base for plating

Enamelware

Our bowls are made from enamelled steel. Enamel is a high quality surface treatment with a long heritage. It makes the bowls extremely durable and long lasting.

Enamelware is fully recyclable and made from abundant materials, which helps to reduce the strain on the environment.

Why we use it:
- Extremely durable
- Sustainable and recyclable
- Does not "leak" harmful chemicals
- Free from heavy metals

Packaging

Dust bag
All our collars and leashes are shipped in a protective dust bag made from organically grown cotton, meaning that no pesticides or fertilizers have been used in the production process.
