Why make bags from recycled leather?
Leather is a resource-intense material, with a high carbon footprint and upcycling leather effectively reduces chemical use, water consumption, and waste. And we love rethinking waste into potential. In a world with limited resources and climate change on everyone's main agendas, we are thinking circular, and are designing our bag collection from sustainable resources which are mainly up- & recycled. A leather sofa can circulate a number of times as second-hand furniture among consumers. One day the sofa may get a hole, a big stain, or no longer meets the standard, and needs to retire. Yet the leather component can transform into a new life. We believe such durable and beautiful material is a wonderful addition to our material universe
How to take care of your leather bag
Pre-loved material wants to be taken care of to ensure a long second life. Walking out in all kinds of climates and adventures will add to the expression of the bag and we sure love a beautiful patina. We suggest treating your bag with wax and or using an impregnation spray from time to time, to keep the bag shiny and protected from drying out.
Colors of the leather collection
We mainly work with the classic colors brown and black for our upcycled leather series. Yet we love a good statement and always watch out for special colors when we handpick the materials. We will occasionally launch limited items in special colors like blue, red, and white in our webshop. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay updated on special items.
