The Leather We Use

Our leather items are crafted from vegetable-tanned leather, a minimally treated and comparatively environmental-friendly type of leather. This traditional method of tanning uses natural tannins derived from plant materials, such as tree barks, avoiding the use of harsh chemicals commonly found in other tanning processes.

The edges of our vegetable-tanned leather products are meticulously hand-sewed and crafted, showcasing the natural beauty and character of the material. Careful attention is given to create smooth, clean edges that accentuate the organic texture and provide a refined finish without relying on edge paint or artificial treatments.

Vegetable tanning allows the leather to maintain its natural characteristics and unique markings, resulting in an authentic and organic appearance. Over time, it develops a beautiful patina, adding to its charm and individuality. Compared to tanning methods involving synthetic chemicals and coatings, vegetable-tanned leather offers a more natural and eco-friendly choice.

In our commitment to sustainability, we also source quality leather scraps from tanneries and showrooms to upcycle the unused pieces, incorporating them into some of our products. By choosing our products, you are not only acquiring a high-quality product but also contributing to a more environmentally conscious and sustainable lifestyle.
