Leather is a fantastic material in many ways. Beautiful and versatile. Comfortable, breathable and resistant. With time it will develop patina and unique character. By caring for your leather garments, you contribute to sustainable consumption as it will last for several years to come.
The majority of our leather garments are treated with plant-based tannins – vegetable tanned leather. This means that the tanning is made from natural sources such as leafs and bark instead of chromium sulfates. Due to the natural and organic Mimosa bark that is used during production, vegetable tanning is the most environmentally friendly way of producing leather. The tanning makes the material durable, strong and robust – which also means that it will, if cared for, last longer than a lifetime.
