Custom Rope Lead


Ask a question

This is listing is for one custom rope lead. Please let me know in the comments what colors you would like, along with leash length (4, 5, or 6 ft), and if you'd like brass or stainless hardware.

Pictured leads are for example only.

This sturdy, hand dyed, cotton rope leash is perfect for hiking or long walks on the beach 😉

The upcycled brass snap hooks are salvaged from retired life jackets from a boathouse in Texas.

French whipstitching finishes off the rope splice on this leash.

All items are final sale!


Due to the handcrafted and upcycled nature of this item, it may have nubs, knots, scuffs, scratches, or other imperfections. That's what makes it so awesome!

(I also have dogs and work with sheepskin fur, so some hair may find it's way into your package. I do my best to clean items before shipping, but I can't always avoid the canine confetti!)

Use caution around light fabrics, as these darker dyes may transfer color to other surfaces.

This lead is not to be used for tie out, and is not guaranteed against heavy pullers.


Hand wash with mild detergent, hang or lay flat to dry. Colors may transfer to other areas of the leash while wet, so try to avoid bunching, or folding the leash while wet.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

I will gladly entertain ideas for custom orders. However, I will not use copywrited images or copy another maker's work for any collars. This includes, but is not limited to, famous brand logos, popular movie/cartoon characters, and spot/stud patterns unique to another collar maker. If you have original artwork you would like me to incorporate into your design, I will gladly do so as long as you are the artist or you have permission from the artist to use them image. I also know plenty of artists who would be happy to help me make artwork for your custom piece for an additional fee.

Care instructions

Leather collars:
All collars are hand dyed. To extend the life of your collar, please avoid excessive sun exposure. Do not use anything containing alcohol on your leather collar. It may effect the color or finish. Clean your collars using liquid glycerine saddle soap and a soft bristle brush. If your collar has cut outs, you can use a toothbrush and a bit of water with the saddle soap to clean the canvas or webbing inlay. Wipe away excess saddle soap, and allow leather to dry. Use a soft flannel cloth to buff in a wax based leather conditioner, avoiding the cotton inlays. Allow a thin layer to sit on the leather for an hour or so to penetrate the leather. Then buff away the excess until you get a natural shine.

How do I request a custom order? Do you have a waiting list?

If you are interested in placing a custom order for any of our shop items, please send the shop a message. I currently have a running waiting list for custom collar orders, and I only work on a limited number of pieces at a time. I can also take a limited number of orders for custom dyed rope leashes, custom tug toys, personalized bandanas, and harness patches every month. If you are interested in any custom or personalized pieces, please take a look at our samples listings.
