What is BioThane®?

BioThane® is the brand name of the highest quality waterproof webbing that is currently available on the market. The material is durable with a tested average break strength of 340kg, is waterproof, easy to clean and remains always odour-free. Genuine BioThane® waterproof webbing is of a higher quality, much smoother to touch, flexuous and more durable with a longer lifeline than other waterproof webbings on the market. 

BioThane® is a coated webbing, with waterproof, stink proof, non stretch, colour fast & wipe clean benefits! All products made from BioThane® are clearly labeled (and items made from a lower cost waterproof webbing alternative are labelled in the product name). BioThane® has been well tested for durability, strength, and colour fastness by the manufacturers.

The strength comes from the polyester webbing core, whilst the thin TPU coating gives waterproofing, whilst also making it stink-proof and easy to clean in your kitchen sink. BioThane® is a great cruelty free alternative to leather as it offers a similar look plus, it doesn't stretch and has the added benefits above.


What size collar should I order?

Please measure your dog's neck, using a fabric tape measure, and ensure you are able to fit two fingers between the tape measure and your dog's neck. If your dog is nearing the end of a size, please opt for the bigger size and let us know the exact measurement in your order notes so we can create a custom fit collar for you.

We offer 5 sizes in our collar range as per the below:

XS - 8-12" (width 16mm)

S - 10-14" (width 16mm)

M - 12-16" (width 19mm)

L - 15-20" (width 25mm)

XL - 19-24" (width 25mm) 

We use set widths for our collars dependant on the size ordered but if you would prefer a different width please contact us before ordering.


How do I clean my BioThane® products?

We recommend to clean your BioThane® products with warm soapy water. If the product is very dirty then first soak in soapy water, then scrub with a cleaning brush or cloth.

We do not recommend using bleach when cleaning your BioThane products, as this can bleach out the webbing colours.

The solid brass hardware we use can tarnish a little when its metal components copper and zinc are exposed to oxygen. This is a natural process. The oils in your skin also have an effect on brass, so the more an item is used, the more tarnishing can occur. You can clean the brass components with a little lemon juice and baking soda on a damp cloth. 

If one of our solid brass trigger clasps become stiff you can use a little WD40 or similar lubricant on it.
