Thank you for visiting Cria & Co! Every collar is handcrafted in our little studio in NYC. I started making cat collars in 2021 when our cat Lollie moved in with us. Even though she’s an indoor-only cat, we wanted to make sure she always had a collar with her ID tag on in case she accidentally got out of the house. We purchased one at the store, but it never stayed on for more than a few minutes. I started examining store-bought collars more closely and realized that this might be because the materials were too rigid. So I cut off the hardware pieces from the collar and made a new one using a lightweight, soft cotton fabric. To my surprise, she never took that collar off again.
