About Us

Hester and Birt is a company based on the Western edge of Dartmoor.

The rugged landscape is ideal for testing the quality and durability of our products.
Hester, a working Springer Spaniel, leaves no tor, tarn or thicket unexplored whilst
Birt directs her with whistle and wild hand signals.

These sturdy collars and leads are made in Kenya of high quality leather and finished with handmade recycled brass buckle and clips.

Each is hand beaded by a highly skilled collective of Maasai women, using traditional patterns. This provides regular sustainable income for them and their communities.
