Hemp & Solid Brass Dog Leash - Kaufmann Mercantile

This marine-grade, three-strand hemp rope with waxed olive thread was formulated especially for us here at Kaufmann Mercantile. The rope is hand-spliced (precisely and strategically twisted and threaded by hand) to withstand thousands of pounds in weight resistance – for those pups yet to graduate from behavioral school. To prevent fraying, the ends of the rope are whipped (wrapped and knotted securely) with waxed thread.

Two solid brass trigger snap clips and two O-rings along the length of the rope allow for adjustable length and versatile use. If your dog is not a puller, or for times when you are juggling your wallet, coffee and pet all at once, the leash can be used hands-free by securing around your waist or across your shoulder. It can also be clipped around a banister or railing if you need to find your keys or quickly dash into a no-animal zone.

Each leash comes with a brass tag stamped with a unique number representing your pet.

Use & Care

To preserve the longevity of your hemp rope leash, hand wash with water and a mild detergent. 

Production & Design

Founders Bethany Obrecht and Anna Conway first met serendipitously in Brooklyn while walking their rescued dogs, both called Walter. Their conversation that day revealed they had more in common than just dog names—they both attended design schools and shared a passion for animal welfare, favoring rescue and adoption over purchase.

In 2007, they launched their line of collars, leashes and other pet accessories with the aim of creating good-looking pet products as well as giving back to animals in need. Anna’s fisherman brother-in-law inspired the nautical look and feel of the leashes, which meet marine standards thanks to the hand-spliced rope strength and whipped, fray-free ends.

A small team of employees creates each product by hand in the Brooklyn studio. Every month, they donate time, money and products to non-profits that benefit rescue animals.
