This year, to celebrate our birthday, we have taken our inspiration from our clients bespoke choices.
The first is Rubie’s Leopard Rose. A fabulous addition to our Safari range.
Over the years this has been possibly the most popular but I could not quite find the perfect Candy Pink to make it a standard Holly&Lil. Well we have now and here it is:
We will launch it at Crufts this March and it will be available online from 6th March.
Prices start from £49
Our second Launch this spring is Maisie Moos Flower Garden
Since the launch of Union Rose Flower Collar we have made a few bespoke choices – for our Birthday year we will offer a few colour ways at no bespoke charge.
Beautifully Hand crafted Calf leather flowers in Red, Blue, Yellow and Pink…… suitable for everyday wear as long as your dog is not an all in wrestler.
Prices from £90
Having got a “brief” from Omar Von Muller and his wife Mercy Holly&Lil designed two collar and lead sets specially for Uggie: the black patent bow with gold spots and black calf front with Gold piping and matching lead being a hot contender for the Oscars. http://t.co/hQkPKljK
On the night however Uggie was coordinated in a bow-tie matching the actor Jean Dujardin….. but the Holly&Lil lead, with it’s signature heart, made the carpet.
Holly&Lil are world famous for the bespoke collars and leads. And it is easy to see why.
The philosophy behind Holly&Lil is to combine the British tradition of quality handmade leatherwork with a keen design edge which no other company can match. All the collars are designer originals and made in London, England. Exciting new collections are introduced every season and Holly&Lil also offers a unique ‘Make Me One’ Bespoke service – used by show dog owners and many other people who want their dogs to wear complete one-offs.
So whether you are off to the Oscars or for a walk in the park, Holly&Lil have a special collar and lead just for your very special friend.

Lloyd Loom of Spalding is an innovative British manufacturer making the genuine Lloyd Loom weave and furniture using traditional techniques and materials.Â Â Every piece is individually handmade using steam-bent beech wood and the unique twisted paper and wire Lloyd Loom weave and is coloured to the clientâ€™s specification.Â The factory and showroom has been in the market town of Spalding since 1985 and is the only company in the UK making Lloyd Loom furniture.Â Â TheÂ range contains more than 150 different products.
How do you treat a very large window so that the space becomes interesting, gives privacy and can let in as much light as you want?
Â This was the problem Silent Gliss were recently confronted with when helping a client dress a large window in the kitchen.
Â Their solution was to use Andrea vertical waves designed by Eva Marmbrandt.Â Vertical waves form a sculptural wall when closed and you can easily determine the amount of light you want by adjusting the vertical louvres.
All Silent Gliss products are made to measure.Â Vertical waves start at Â£438.

Holly & Lil decided to relaunch their beautiful Brocade collection in time for the festive season forÂ three reasons but mostly because they love it and so do their customers.
The Brocade collars are good forÂ everyday use and are happy to take regular wetting,Â mud and fox poo rolling from active dogs.Â The backing is supple calf leather, rolled and piped around the edges of the cowhide to create a finish weâ€™ve created to be kind to neck fur. Customers report that they are thrilled that although these collars are so durable, they donâ€™t â€˜carveâ€™ collar lines and can help overcome matting in long or silky coats.
However, Â if your dog is a constantÂ neck ‘scratcher’, you will need to make sure that his or her claws are not tearing the weave of the Brocade.
All colourways come as both â€œSlimsâ€ and â€œWidesâ€.
Greyhound/lurcher collars are now available; use the Bespoke Option below to select.
NB: Sizes Â½ and 1 â€˜miniwidesâ€™Â lightweight collarsÂ are specially designedÂ for mini breeds such as Chihuahuas.Â Small terriers are better suited by our â€˜Slim 5/8â€ full buckleâ€™ design.
Prices from Â£48.00
