WHAt is eco-friendly leather?
Eco-friendly leather can be produced either from cattle or synthetic materials. With a commitment to keeping our bags as natural as possible, we have chosen to use real leather, as we believe this is currently the more sustainable option.
A key feature of eco-friendly leather is that it avoids the use harmful chemicals during the tanning process. Our leather is tested by an independent laboratory to verify that it is free from chemicals such as formaldehyde, chromium IV, lead, short-chain chlorinated paraffin, alkyl phenol ethoxylates and PAHs. Vegetable tannins replace the use of these chemicals, significantly lowering the negative impact on the environment.
