I ordered two custom martingale collars, and have been somewhat disappointed in both of them. One is a solid fabric sort of like suede, and it shows dirt all the time, even just after being washed. However it is soft to the touch so I do like that.

The second is cotton patterned fabric, and I think the fabric is not soft enough, and the color has faded dramatically in the 1 month I have used it. I don't leave it on the dog unless we are going for a walk, so it seems like it should not be so faded.

Below the 2 in collar is a 1 inch premier collar that I tried to decorate with a beaded band that I made. I like the beading, but found that the nylon webbing for the collar is too tough for me to sew the beading in place, so I glued it on. It's not spectacular but is somewhat attractive.
So, my question is: Do you have any suggestions for hard wearing collars that are also beautiful?
