THE ENVIRONMENTAL COST OF FIBER
Often times we don’t think of where are clothing material comes from or the environmental and social costs that come with it. Cotton is heavily sprayed with pesticides and there are poor working conditions for cotton farmers and processors around the world. Cotton clothing also wears out fairly quickly, causing the need for more of it to be produced. Commercial leather making uses heavy metal chrome chemicals for tanning, resulting in pollution of streams and waterways.
OUR APPROACH TO FIBER
By using natural tanning methods and sourcing local materials, we are proud to make some of the most ethical and sustainable fabric available. All of our leather is tanned by hand without heavy metals or toxic chemicals and without soil disturbance or pesticide use. No animals are raised or hunted for our tanning and a lot of the hides would otherwise go to waste. Our products are very durable and if properly cared for should last for decades.
