An important thing to recognize about our BioThane compare to others is that we use industrial stitching instead of rivets to assemble them. BioThane is a nylon core (Which gives it its strength) with a rubberized coating. When companies manufacture with rivets you pierce the webbing, compromising its strength. We use size appropriate rivets in a few stress points, but always making sure we don't damage the core.
As every screen/monitor has different color properties, there can be slight differences between what you see and the actual product.
Due to the handmade nature of these items, there may be slight variations in color or length. No two leashes will be identical.
