American petwear brand Pagerie has released its debut collection Sahara, featuring a leather dog collar, leash and harness treated in the same tannery as Hermès’s coveted Birkin bags.

The brand, which bills itself as the world’s first “luxury fashion house for pets”, makes each piece by hand using sandy-hued, full-grain French leather and marine-grade stainless steel normally reserved for making yachts.

“I just always found it odd when I’d see people dressed immaculately but then their dog is sporting a bright red plastic leash from a chain pet store,” founder Mandy Madden Kelley told Dezeen.

“Our pets are a reflection and extension of ourselves and I realized there was such a gap in the market for products that live up to that connection.”
