Chews Happiness Launches Handwoven Yak Down Leashes and Collars

August 17, 2016

Chews Happiness launched its new line of handcrafted leashes and collars at SuperZoo 2016. The environmentally-conscious line is handwoven from yak down that is luxuriously soft, silky and extremely strong, according to the company.

Yak down is naturally shed and is an extremely robust natural fiber. According to Chews Happiness, it is “kinder to the planet than cashmere, which causes land degradation due to overgrazing of cashmere goats.”

“We were so incredibly amazed regarding how soft and strong this incredible fiber is that we had to work with our Bhutanese artisans to fabricate these WOW leashes and collars,” said Tavor White, Chews Happiness’s CEO and founder.

Handcrafted by Bhutanese master women artisans high in the Himalayas applying traditional hand-weaving techniques, Chews Happiness’ fairly-traded leashes and collars are inspired by traditional Bhutanese textiles and are designed to complement its new Happiness Hugs dog apparel. Individually woven from luxurious, cruelty-free yak down, each piece is meant to be durable, beautiful and one-of-a-kind.

In addition, Chews Happiness recently launched Happiness Hugs, a line of environmentally conscious fashion from yak down that is luxuriously soft, silky and warmer than alpaca and cashmere, according to the company. Each features traditional and spiritually meaningful Bhutanese motifs and represent ideals such as long life, stability, wisdom and the interconnectedness of all beings. They are also handcrafted by women artisans from Bhutan to Boulder, Colorado.
