About Us

Magical mayhem started with a puppy called Oscar…

portrait_002Oscar ‘Wilde’ landed into Mel’s life and there was no doubt he had well and truly arrived – turning her life upside down and inside out!

Thoroughly smitten with the new arrival and struggling to find the perfect collar – with the help of some talented award-winning accessories designer friends, she set about conjuring up some styles to suit her new canine companion. Creating easy-wear leather dog collars and leads that complemented his smart yet ‘happy-go-lucky’ attitude.

Although a typical terrier with a ‘rough and ready’ character, like his namesake he prefers the finer things in life… ‘always satisfied with the best,’ so top-notch craftsmanship, fashion forward style and luxury finish was called for.

Inspired by traditional saddlery techniques, our little factory in the heart of the English countryside set about handcrafting a range of styles from the finest full-grain Italian leather in an array of gorgeous colours.

Exciting ideas are hard to keep secret and Oscar’s wardrobe soon found a way out of the studio in North London, spreading to many of his pals around town and up-country. Rokabone was officially born! Since these humble beginnings we have expanded into wholesale and send our collection of coveted canine apparel to customers all over the place, from New York to Auckland

Rokabone, British Collarsmith for Deserving Dogs. Creating stylish yet wearable dog accessories with a London edge, the philosophy is simple enough but the deeper value for us is your dog’s wellbeing and a continued satisfaction with our service.

We are warmly grateful for the support of our customers and friends and say a big THANK YOU for taking the time to visit us.
