The SOTER retractable lead is a special piece of craftsmanship, stitched by hand in the finest upholstery leather. It is designed to be as functional as a modern retractable lead, but with the added luxury of a leather sheath, that sits better in the hand and offers better grip.
The SOTER is fitted with a brass D-ring so you can wear it around your upper body when your dog is running free off the lead.

Leather is a material that loves to get used! When properly taken care of it ages gracefully and will last you a lifetime.
Clean with a damp cotton cloth and leave to dry. When dry, apply a thin layer of leather fat with a soft shoe brush, a soft cotton cloth or even better – directly with your hands. We recommend using a colour neutral colour, natural leather fat without silicones. A natural, chemical free leather fat will agree with your dogs coat too.
After washing or after a wet and rainy day out, it’s a good idea to let your leather goods dry at room temperature. If the leather is dried in high temperatures, for example on a warm bathroom floor or radiator, it might retract and get dry and stiff. We use only vegetable tanned leather for all the products that will be in contact with your dogs skin and fur. Vegetable tanned basically means that the leather has been dyed with natural products like oak, spruce bark, quebracho, olive leaves and mimosa bark. By using vegetable tanned leather, we eliminate the risk of allergies that can be caused by chrome tanned leather. Vegetable tanned leather will age more naturally than chrome tanned and this will result in a more individual look over time. Nude coloured products will get darker when used and when leather fat or conditioner is applied. In summary: use your leather goods as much as possible, keep them clean and apply fat and love on occasion.

Brass is a metal that is completely free of nickel. We use solid brass hardware in our products to eliminate the risk of nickel allergies. It is also a beautiful material that ages with grace. Because the hardware we use is solid cast, there will never be any unwanted change in colour. Brass however can get dull over time, to get it all nice and shiny again you can simply use a brass polish and wipe with a damp cloth or use some pretty cool natural tricks:
Option 1 – Ketchup!
Simply rub a thin layer onto the brass, let sit for an hour or so and then clean with hot soapy water.
Option 2 – For more heavily tarnished brass
1/2 cup baking soda, 1 cup white vinegar and 2 tbsp of salt into a small bowl. Mix the ingredients together and apply a thick layer of the paste onto the brass. Then simply rinse off with cool water.
