In all aspects of our business, our team is consistently making adjustments to our practices to do better. There’s still a lot of room for improvement, however as we learn and grow we will ensure that our impact on the earth will be as minimal as possible through smart design, ethical manufacturing and a sustainable approach to everything that we do.
We are proudly committed to supporting sustainable leather manufacturing across the globe and that is why we are proud members of the Leather Working Group/LWG. We source our leather from a small handful of tanneries in Italy. These tanneries also supply luxury brands such as Saint Laurent and Celine and are known for their high grade of leather and therefore lowest wastage. We also work to develop small items through considered design so that every part of the hide is used and nothing is left on the cutting room floor.
From October 2019, we eliminated plastic bags from our packaging, and replaced them with new alternatives such as biodegradable boxes and home compostable bags. By swapping to environmentally friendly packaging, we have saved thousands of single-use plastic bags from entering the environment annually. In 21 and beyond, our aim is to continue to develop better practices in this area.
We have a long standing relationship with talented and trusted supply partners who we regularly visit to assure working conditions not only meet, but exceed ethical standards. This is to ensure all involved are treated respectfully and fairly along the way.
It is our goal to continue to improve our products, manufacturing, packaging and design to greatly reduce our environmental impact. With a new project in the works, we also hope to be fully immersed in the circular economy by mid 2021. We can’t achieve these goals without your support. Please feel free to tell us what you love and how you think we could improve.
