1.4 Leather
We know that leather consumption is often a topic for discussion. We believe that leather garments are long lasting, durable and offers a long lifespan for products. When sourcing our leather fabrics, we work with trusted partners in New Zealand where we primarily use goat leather. The reason why we use New Zealand leather is because they are the frontrunners in the world when it comes to regulations of animal welfare and rights. For this reason, we are working with fabrics that are LGW approved[1] as well as Realgrade certified[2]. The leather that we use is a biproduct of the meat industry, and therefore we don’t kill animals unnecessarily, but use what is already being used.
