There are all kinds of dog collars and leashes you could use to take your best friend for a walk, jeweled dog collars and logo embossed dog leashes from luxury goods purveyors who have elevated this joyful outing to a level of conspicuous branding; do you honestly believe your dog cares if he's being walked on a $600 crocodile leash? In a vastly different way, we offer the absolute best.
The neighbour of a dear friend has the original - a leash used to walk their beautiful Weimaraner whose name happens to be Jasper. It turns out they found the leash just lying about in a park - no idea who made the original or where it came from. I puzzled over the 'knot' in that leash for hours - all the familiar and wonderful things it brought to mind - my nieces tying their shoes for the first time, sailing, rope hammocks, and especially Celtic knots. But I asked Ian to re-create Jasper's leash primarily because it is just so cool to look at and taking your best friend for walks could be that much more special with it. Ian's efforts are always sublime and Jasper's Knot, available exclusively through Thistle & Broom, is no exception.
Like all of Ian's English bridle leather dog collars and dog leashes, Jasper's Knot is bench made by hand in the Shetland Islands. Intricately cut and twisted of a single piece of leather to form two Celtic knots then hand stitched, waxed and bluffed to a soft lustre. Jasper's Knot comes in black or brown English Bridle Leather with solid brass or chrome plated brass fittings. It also comes with a one-year, no quibble guarantee against defects in manufacture - just don't leave it about as a chew chip. Approximately 42" in length and availble in 1/2", 3/4" and 1" wide sizes, Jasper's Knot is the perfect complement to Ian's plain English Bridle Leather dog collars.
