Is leather bad for the environment?

Leather is a by product of the food industry and takes a material that would otherwise end up in landfill and turns it into something beautiful, that lasts and then biodegrades. So, leather actually is a benefit to the climate.

We strongly believe in local. It’s friendlier for our planet if we endeavour to source all our materials as locally as possible. Our specialist leathers are produced by Italian tanneries. the tanneries have proven track records for care of the environment and the welfare of the stock animals used for the supply of rawhides.

Leather is a natural product so it’s important to bear this in mind when working with it. Leather wears in rather than wearing out. This naturalness gives leather its beauty and unique character that distinguishes it from synthetic alternatives including vegan leather. These variations can be classed as the hallmarks of fine leather. Leather may fade over time, (degree dependant on leather range/type) and it will age over time. If you are at all unsure of suitability, please get in touch with our sales team or read more about the natural characteristics of leather.

Why can you consider real leather is better than synthetic or Faux leather?

Real leather is a natural by product rather than synthetics being made from climate harming raw materials.
