Hand crafted items can be a hit or a miss... and this was an absolute hit. The leash itself feels so solid and stretchy at the same time. The color is on point with what is advertised on the website. Love the product and the fact that it didn't come from a factory from halfway around the world! My only recommendation for this wonderful product is to rethink the hardware. The hook looks and feels like quality material, but at one point my dog's pulling got the better of the hook and it came off of her collar! (I'm working on the leash pulling lol). This only happened one time, and could be a fluke, but wanted to mention it in case there was a desire for some sort of improvement.
