Leather is a highly durable and long-lasting material. It develops a fine patina over time and can last a lifetime with the right care. Leather is made from tanned animal hides. There are different types of leather, depending on the animal species, varying from soft to particularly robust. We only use leather that is chrome-free. Chromium is a heavy metal used in conventional tanning that is harmful to both the environment and workers. The tannery, we are working with, is a gold rated member of the Leather Working Group (LWG). All production steps take place in Turkey, from farm to factory. By keeping the supply chain short, local and transparent we know exactly where this product was made, reduce its greenhouse gas footprint and are able to work with our suppliers to always do better.
