Hand-made & Crafted


Nautical Leashes & Collars

Who Are We?

Fair Leads was founded in 2010 by world cruising sailor and marlinspike artist, Jessica Wurzbacher. Fair Leads are uniquely designed leashes and collars with a nautical flair. Each Fair Lead is hand crafted in Jamestown, Rhode Island and made with 100% marine grade materials. Our range of products includes nautical dog leashes & collars for all size dogs in a variety of colors. All Leashes and collars are tough, strong and hard wearing as well as being stylish and unique – perfect for the salty dog. All leashes include a hand stitched leather handle making the leash extremely comfortable to hold as well as adding a true nautical feel. The hardware is marine grade and the bronze swivel snap clip securely attach the leash to your dog. This will not rust at the beach or when exposed to salt water. There is a ring on the handle to clip the leash over your shoulder while your dog plays off the leash. Thank you for your support of a small local Rhode Island business.
