Our goal at Hoadin is to create beautiful products for dogs and their humans using the highest quality, eco-friendly materials. We were delighted to discover cork fabric, a wonderful leather alternative. Cork is a strong yet soft, water resistant material with natural anti-microbial properties. It's beautiful, sustainable and we made it the signature material for our first collection of dog accessories. Learn more about why we fell in love.
Our next discovery was non-toxic, C4X waxed canvas. The special wax impregnated into the canvas contains no parabens, petroleum, formaldehyde or PFOA's. We loved the superior water resistant qualities combined with a unique, distressed leather or perfect pair of faded jeans look that develops. The ability to re-wax when needed, adds to their longevity. See below for care instructions for all of our fabrics.
Our matte nickel finished, solid brass hardware gives our products their durable good looks and will hold up to anything your dog or you can put it through. Our side release buckles dog collars are made with lightweight, yet super strong and rust resistant aluminum.
Our materials may come from all over the world, but Hoadin dog accessories are handcrafted in Norwalk, CT, U.S.A. Our T-shirts are primarily made in Central America but are printed in the United States. Our goal is keep all product manufacturing and source as many materials as possible in the U.S. We support jobs for our fellow Americans and reducing the carbon foot print.
T-Shirts: For best results, machine wash cold, tumble dry low, don't bleach, don't iron printed logo.
Waxed Canvas Products: ** If your product arrives with light colored marks, don't worry! Just zap them with a blow dryer. The wax will melt slightly and redistribute. **
When cleaning waxed canvas, do not use detergent/soap. Rinse off with warm water or rub gently with a damp cloth. That's all that is needed. If the wax wears off in areas, it can be refinished with canvas refinishing wax. Order your wax bar here.
Rewaxing: Make sure you start with a clean product. To re-wax your Hoadin Waxed Canvas products, there are two ways:
A.) Start with a pea size piece of C4X wax and melt with safe heat source. Gently rub into the canvas fabric. Repeat until desired look/feel. Let it set a few hours before using.
B.) Dry rub the canvas with your C4X wax bar evenly. Then set the wax with a blow dryer or heat gun. Let it set a few hours before using.
