Every piece of leather we use is vegetable tanned and free of chrome and other toxic chemicals. The thick leather for our cotton- and linenbag straps comes from Italy. For all other leather goods we use premium olive leaf tanned leather from Spain. This innovative tanning method sets new standards in respect of environmental sustainability. The natural tanning agent is extracted from olive leaves – a by-product of the olive harvest, valuable and very little-used. Its production reduces the emission of carbon dioxide as the leaves are no longer burned. The leather tanning procedure not only ensures maximum sustainability and consideration of all ecological aspects but also allows reduction of acids, salts, syntans and dyestuffs as compared to traditional tanning methods.
