I just met the gal who makes these collars yesterday at the Baltimore Farmers market. They are beautiful and a great price for what you get. her name is Barbara and she and her husband make them by hand (they also have 3 rescue greyhounds). I got a green celtic desing martingale for POllo and blue for Molly - but hers didn't fit over her goofy ear, so I need to exchange it. anyway, check out the site, the collars are beautifully made.
here's apollo in a 1.5 inch collar (and molly looking sad, cuz hers didn't fit)
