Why Should You Choose a Laminated Cotton Dog Collar?

If you like me grew up with an elementary school teacher, you understand the value of laminate! I grew up helping my mom laminate all of her teaching materials so that they would hold up to dirty little kid hands, spills, dirt, and other wear and tear that comes with the territory when dealing with kindergartners.

mastiff frank Capri laminated big dog collar I’ll be honest, I’d never heard of it being used in pet products until I started working at Mimi Green! But once I got to work with it, I was totally sold. For many of the same reasons listed above, it makes your dogs collar hold up to wear and tear much better than standard fabric dog collars. The laminate makes the cotton that much more durable and dirt resistant, while still remaining flexible and beautiful. After your dog is done playing outside, all your have to do is wipe it off with a damp cloth to restore it to its original condition.

We used to find it relatively easily, however as with many other things it seems like it was affected by supply chain issues in the last couple years. However ,we always kept in mind how loyal many of our customers have become to laminated cotton, and didn’t want to let them down. So we have been looking for awhile now for another pattern that we thought you would love – and I think we’ve finally found it. Well, we’ve found two!

Our new “Meadow” floral laminate is lush and classy looking, and would look perfect on your refined little lady dog – who also likes to get her paws dirty sometimes. We really love it on our golden yellow webbing, but it looks great on pink and green as well! We also wanted a pattern perfect for your rough and tumble boy pups that still want to look their best! Our “Capri” pattern is perfect for that. Navy blue with white brush strokes this pattern looks like a painting. Have a pair of pups? These two patterns pair great together.

At Mimi Green we know that a collar is not just a collar – it sign that your dog is loved. That they have a home and a family. That they belong with you! Our laminated cotton is special because it holds up through all of your pups stages and activities, and we hope that you’ll try it out if you haven’t yet. Trust us, there is a reason our customers keep coming back for it!

The dawn of our new Blog, circa 2023

Years ago when I first started Mimi Green, I was an avid blogger. I blogged all about my life, my kids, my house projects and my makes. That was 2007. At the time, facebook was just becoming popular and texting was finally becoming free (remember when it was like $.25 a text?!) And things just started to change.  Being vulnerable and open on my blog felt safe, my readers were so engaged and so supportive.   When Instagram’s popularity began to increase I noticed more people spending time on Insta (which lets face it, is a place to write mini blogs) and less time on their blog feeds.
