We live in a beautiful, created, thriving world and we care about its future. That’s why we’re constantly looking for ways to improve how we work so that we can minimise our environmental impact. Here’s a little insight into how we are doing this.
The leather we source to create all of our goods comes from European Bulls - the skins do not come from animals that have grazed on deforested land. By choosing to use authentic leather, which is a byproduct of the meat industry, we avoid the production of alternative leathers that are often made from plastics like PVC and polyurethane. Authentic leather is extremely durable, beautiful, and smells amazing too!
We work with a local paper printing business who source our paper from Fedrigoni, a company that pays close attention to sustainability and respect for the environment. This begins with how their raw materials are sourced, right through to their range of papers that bear the FSC® Chain of Custody certification.
We want to avoid single use plastics wherever we can which is why you won't find any of it in our packaging! Many of the materials we source arrive to us in cardboard boxes - we don’t want these to go to waste. All of the shredded padding you’ll find in our packaging comes from this cardboard which we shred ourselves. Not only does this help to keep your goods safe in transit, but it helps us cut down on our own waste too!

The genuine leather that we use to create our products is a natural material made from wild animals and is therefore subject to change from hide to hide. Signs of wear, stretch marks and other characteristics are normal when working with leather. Small scratches, blemishes, or dents may be visible on the product, which come from the experiences of the animal. We believe that these characteristics give our products character and add to their appeal. Our products are crafted and handled with care, and each hide is hand selected for quality and character.
