SOLVING LOCAL WASTE STREAMS
We strive for making the most of waste materials, so the leather we use is a by-product of the meat industry. The cow hides come from wide-open North American farms, close to our leather tanneries.
HIGH QUALITY, CHROMIUM-FREE & VEGETABLE-TANNED
In order to make our products long-lasting, we needed extra resistant and durable leather. As such, we made sure to select suppliers that could provide us with the highest quality certified chromium-free leather. Our leather is vegetable-tanned and dyed using plants. No harmful chemicals here.
LEATHER WORKING GROUP CERTIFIED
The tanneries we work with have been Gold or Silver rated by the Leather Working Group. This means that their commitment to environmental stewardship is backed by a well-recognized and industry-leading certification. This also includes routine auditing of the tanneries' manufacturing practices, operating permits, raw material sourcing, traceability, use of restricted substances, energy consumption, water usage, air and noise emission and waste management.
