We use RCS-100 certified recycled leather, an innovative new material tackling textile waste. Up-cycled leather is a natural material which has low environmental impact. It's proudly sustainable, yet retains the beautiful look and feel of traditional leather. The production process itself creates zero manufacturing material waste. This process also produces fewer chemical emissions and uses substantially less water than conventional leather production processes - a big win for the planet.
EXACTLY WHAT IS UP-CYCLED LEATHER & HOW IS IT MADE?
Well, it all starts with a gardening glove! Genuine leather off-cuts are salvaged from the cutting room floor of a gardening glove factory, diverting large amounts of waste from landfill. The off-cuts are shredded into fibres, bound together with natural rubber (no nasties!) and then reformed into new sheets of quality up-cycled leather. The new up-cycled leather is then transformed into our innovative wallet designs. So when you purchase one of our accessories, not only do you get the wallet of your dreams but you can feel great knowing that you’ve directly saved waste from reaching landfill. In fact each wallet saves up to 200 grams of waste!
