ALU Collars. You know we are huge fans of products where form meets function and when use creates design. ALU is a brand after our own hearts. Their Kickstarter campaign claims that their main objectives were to incorporate ease of use, quality and longevity into their dog collars and while they did accomplish these goals, they also inadvertently created a beautiful specimen of industrial art. The buckle hardware is crafted from aircraft-grade aluminum and the collar itself consists of a cork layer over hemp webbing. Aluminum has an awesome strength per pound and is 100% recyclable. Cork and hemp is naturally antimicrobial and also a sustainable resource. Using a truly innovative magnetic clasp, the ALU Collar is completely a one-of-a-kind dog collar. $5-$255. KICKSTARTER.
