Environmental Responsibility

 

In a world where fashion is the second biggest polluter of our planet. We are committed to change.

Low Impact, Sustainable & Vegan Materials

Quality is a primary consideration when selecting our sustainable materials, as is the way our accessories are crafted. As a premium product, it is paramount that our innovative eco leather creates accessories which can be manufactured without any compromise on quality or craftsmanship.

 

Scientists and textile engineers are constantly looking to develop new, eco-friendly materials which have less reliance on our planet’s resources. Innovations such as mushroom leather, grape leather and orange fibre silk.

 

Eco, cruelty free and vegan leathers such as pineapple leaf leather, corn leather and apple leather are already in mainstream use and are an excellent alternatives to animal-based leather. They combine the fundamental qualities of animal leather with further benefits and crucially they remove the toxic and damaging processes of tanning and preserving animal skins.

 

Some eco-leathers such as ours, are polymers, made with a base layer of natural material, such as flax and cotton mixed with corn, soybeans, and vegetable oils, which are layered together. This base material is then covered with a polyurethane or microfiber top layer to give durability and longevity.

 

Our commitment to providing the highest quality, sustainable materials means we will continually seek new and innovative textiles which can provide our customers with the best possible finish whilst at the same time protecting the environment.

Eco Leather

{Also referred to as faux leather, synthetic leather}

Our Eco leather is a giant stride towards fully sustainable leather. Rather than being 100% PU, the base material is made with more than 50% BIO Plant material, that does not divert resources necessary for food farms or animal feed. This BIO content comes entirely from renewable sources and is carbon neutral, so the production of the material has a substantially lower impact on the environment.

 

Our material is Chromium and PPD free.

 

 

Our manufacturers facilities are fully powered by photovoltaic generators supplying a combined power of 1,3 MW, and only low environmental impact LED lighting is used throughout the company.

Recycled Lining

{recycled post-consumer plastics, recycled material, re-purposed materials}

Our choice of interior lining is critical to your enjoyment of our products. It is essential that our linings and supporting materials are strong and durable, but they must also look and feel beautiful.

 

Traditionally, leather goods brands use virgin Polyester as a lining, but by using recycled PET fabrics, made with recycled, post-consumer plastic bottles, we can significantly reduce the output of waste water, energy and CO2 and cut down on the consumption of crude oil.

 

 

Our lining material is manufactured in an eco-friendly process and meets Bluesign system standards. Our manufacturer has a number of environmental credentials including the use of Green Power and an onsite treatment facility for all solvent and exhaust air.

Gift Packaging

{refreshingly simple luxury}

Our gift packaging has been carefully considered to reflect our ethos and brand values.

 

Our gift boxes and tissue paper are all made with high quality recycled materials and are further recyclable and bio-degradable.

 

After all, your item will still be luxurious long after the packaging is gone.
