Is The Bag You Carry Killing The Environment?

No animal is killed for its skin. On the contrary, the raw hides used by their tanneries are the discarded by-products of the food industry producing meat for human consumption.

Being tanned with natural tannins, a vegetable-tanned leather object can be easily disposed of at the end of its life, thanks to its chemical-biological characteristics.

Their tanneries have made huge investments in depuration systems and waste recycling that make them work in full respect of man and the environment.

Many of the substances used during the tanning process are recovered, recycled and reused in different fields. Hair removed from raw hides is transformed into agricultural fertilizer; sludge produced by the depuration plants is reused in the construction field to make bricks.

Vegetable-tanned leather, recognizable from its trademark, does not contain any toxic substance such as azo-dyes, nickel, PCP or chrome VI
