Bespoke and Beautiful – The Artemis Collection

Holly&Lil’s Artemis range are subtly beautiful new collars out this Autumn.  Inspired by the Greek Goddess, Artemis, the Huntress and the iconic, fabulous traditional riding boots ,  the collars are made from gloriously sumptuous Black Calf leather piped with either Tan or Mulberry. 


All the fittings are Brass. 

The collars will be made to order specially for you and can take up to 8 weeks to create, though with two workshops up and running now H&L are hoping to cut delivery  times down.

 The collars are available in sizes 1 and above from October . Prices from £54 – see Holly&Lil Classic Collection collars

Perfect for Town and Country



As any well dressed dog knows sometimes only the perfect tweed collar will do and with the new range from Holly&lil, there is no excuse for not looking your best!

Holly &Lil uses a  range of traditional heavy weight world famous Harris Tweed, hand-woven on home looms on the islands of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra, by the islanders  in their own homes, using pure virgin wool that has been dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides.  This is the definition of Harris Tweed contained in the Harris Tweed Act of 1993 and it ensures that all cloth certified with the Harris Tweed Orb symbol complies with this definition and is genuine Harris Tweed, the world’s only commercially produced hand woven tweed.

This year Holly&Lil have added three new colourways to their Harris Tweed collection.  A range that has a chic country style which looks equally at home in  town.

As always this is a limited edition collection of Harris Tweeds.  The out-going tweeds (Pink Thistle and Brown Speckle) have been replaced by three new fabulous colours.


The glorious Lewis – our first Tweed to come from that island.  It is a delicious red/cranberry that is piped and backed with the lustrous British Racing Green.  

Then there is the joyful red speckle of KAONA that is piped and backed with Mulberry. 

 And finally the super smart Rodel that is piped with Red and backed with Black Calf. 

We take this glorious hand-woven fabric and then hand-make our own beautiful collars in our two workshops in England.  The backing is supple calf leather, rolled and piped around the edges of the Tweed to create a finish we’ve created to be kind to neck fur. Customers report that they are thrilled that although these collars are so durable, they don’t ‘carve’ collar lines and can help overcome matting in long or silky coats.

These three join our well established Achamore with Brown, Scarista with Grey and Herringbone with Red and Black trim options.  These are woven by the wonderfully talented Donald John Mackay on Luskyntyre.  The Achamore is also known as the NIKE tweed as several years ago Donald John supplied them with tweed to make limited edition trainers with.  It took him more than 2 years to hand weave enough for their demand.

Available from October prices from £49
