DUTCHIZ TERMS AND CONDITIONS
While I do my best I cannot guarantee that the colours shown on the website exactly reproduce the colours of the products. This may depend on the colour reproduction on your computer or mobile device.
All the leather comes from Europe. I mainly use vegetable tanned full grain leather. Vegetable tanned means that the skin is natural and has an open structure. It is one of the most eco-friendly ways of tanning because it has no synthetic top finish and there are no chemicals used during the tanning process. It’s color can alter when exposed to sunlight. No vegetable tanned leather skin is the same. Vegetable tanned leather will not stay flawless and smooth, scratching will occur and irregularity in color and texture are inherent to the leather. These characteristics can not be seen as a fault, but make it an unique product. This premium quality leather will age beautifully over time.
Information on this website is subject to change without notice.
Please note that vegetable tanned leather has an open structure and will change color when exposed to sunlight. Dutchiz products can be worn during rain and a swim. However if you want the collar the remain spot free, we suggest you avoid water.
It’s important to treat full grain leather with leather conditioner at least once a year. Leather moisturizer will avoid the leather from drying out and will keep the skin supple.
When wet please dry naturally. Do not dry with a blowdryer or heater.
You can use your collars or leash every day to the fullest. If treated with care your collar will age beautifully.
For general maintenance use leather products available at different stores nearby.

QUALITY OF GOODS
Every effort is made to ensure that the products that we supply correspond closely to the samples, images on the website, and any sales collateral. Unfortunately, due to variations in production runs, computer monitor screen differences and leather colour differences, Dutchiz can not accept responsibility for slight variations in colour, embellishment or construction; imperfections and variations which we believe add to the unique features of our products, and most importantly to that of our Bespoke offering.
As Dutchiz dog collars and leashes are hand-made to order and for that reason each and every item will always be slightly different, a truly one-off premium service.
The Buyer acknowledges that minor deviations, deviations that are generally considered acceptable and deviations that cannot be avoided or that are difficult to avoid in respect of the quality, size, colour, finishing, etc. of the Products cannot be avoided or are difficult to avoid and do not constitute a well founded reason to submit a complaint. Such complaints, and complaints regarding the fact that certain articles have been taken out of the product range, are not well founded.
