Chevron leads (in development)

A few people have asked me if I will make leads to match with my collars. I have recently got round to thinking about this. I don't think making a rolled lead in the same way I make rolled collars is going to work; other than being very time-consuming to make and hence expensive, the kind of seam on the rolled collars is inflexible and works well under compression, i.e. on the inside of a collar, but not under any other form of mechanical stress. If I am going to make a lead, I want it to be something with an unusual and intriguing design, not just a piece of leather with a loop in the end and a trigger hook on the other and some rivets in the middle, as anyone can make that and I don't think there is going to be much of a market after it. So I've come up with the following 'chevron' design which we are currently testing.
