Main Manufacturing Countries

We love to make our products well and focus on using high quality materials that are natural, organic and recycled.

Our Veg tan leather is from a traditional Italian tannery, free from harmful chemicals such as Chromium and heavy metals, using mimosa and plant extracts instead. An expensive and longer process, however a cleaner method of tanning leather as the waste maybe recycled. It is finished with oils and waxes resulting in it's patina becoming more beautiful as it ages.

Our interior linings are made from organic cotton that is sourced from Turkey, safer for the farmers and the environment.

Recycled leather is used as an internal structural layer; this is made from off cuts from scrap leather. Sourced from Portugal, where our Accessories are made by skilled craftsmen.
