ECO FRIENDLY LEATHERS
At the core of our brand, we aim to minimize our environmental impact by making products using -
a) Vegetable-tanned leathers that are tanned without the use of harmful chemicals
b) Upcycled leathers i.e. The highest quality of leftover stock leathers that are handpicked from our partner factories around the world to develop limited edition ranges. These leathers would have otherwise been discarded and ended up in landfills.
By using this premium quality deadstock our aim is to create meaningful designs while reducing waste.
PURE LEATHER OVER ARTIFICIAL LEATHER
We believe in Slow fashion, i.e. creating products that last a lifetime.
Leather is not considered as eco-friendly, however, we consider leather as a material of nature and use only bred for stock leathers. We also ensure all leather is LWG certified.
Artificial/vegan leather is actually the opposite of being environmentally friendly as it is made using plastic materials. The manufacture and disposal of PVC-based synthetics let out hazardous dioxins, which can cause developmental and reproductive issues and even cancer. When PVC ends up in a landfill it does not decompose like genuine leather and can release dangerous chemicals into the water and soil.
Moreover, a real, good quality leather can last decades and becomes more beautiful with age, whereas faux leather does not age well, and starts cracking after a few years.
We have also registered our secret recipe of ‘PURE LEATHER’, i.e. eco-friendly leather that is tanned without the use of any harmful chemicals.
