BIO CALF LEATHER: WHAT IS IT?
The leather we use is unique for a number of reasons. First of all, the leather comes from animals reared for meat production, meaning it is fashioned from residue. This process doesn’t cause any quality loss: our refined calf leather is supple and outstanding. Then what’s the catch?
To produce the leather, the hides are tanned with chrome-free products. We work with small family businesses, adhering to the highest ecological and technical standards. They don’t use any harmful chemicals and instead work with natural products, such as resin. This makes the process quite expensive, which might be a reason not every brand pursues this option. Since we truly value sustainability, we invest in the most environmentally friendly option possible, which is reflected in our pricing.
When the tanning process is completed, the leather gets a water-repellent coating, making it resistant to all kinds of weather conditions - even rainy, Belgian ones.
