REGENERATIVE LEATHER

Sourced from farms that use regenerative agricultural practices. This technique gives land a rest so it can absorb carbon, retain water and restore biodiversity to the pastures where the cattle graze. That means not only minimizing negative impact, but potentially having a net positive impact on the land.

what you need to know

  • Grazing practice mimics herd movements, allowing natural grasses to thrive, restoring biodiversity, pulling carbon out of the air, and building healthy, fertile soil
  • Helps provide economic stability for farmers

RECYCLED LEATHER

Made from discarded leather scraps that were otherwise headed to a landfill. Similar to papermaking, scraps are collected, ground up, and pressed into durable sheets. The process creates a unique look and feel and reduces waste.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • Made of leather scraps that come from product waste streams
  • Leather is created in a manner that is similar to a papermaking process, giving it a unique aesthetic
  • Comes in a uniform roll, not a hide, which further reduces waste in the creation of new products
