Real Leather, Stay Different

Join us on World Leather Day 2024 as we come together to honour the unique and enduring qualities of leather. We celebrate its long-lasting, repairable and versatile qualities – making it an ideal material for a circular society.

Let’s delve into the reasons why genuine leather stands as a timeless, sustainable, material of choice.

Environmental Sustainability: through its ability to be repaired, reused and repurposed, leather has proven itself to be a hashtag #SuperFibre. By choosing durable leather products and supporting initiatives, that advocate for responsible consumption, we contribute to a more sustainable future.

Waste Reduction: recycling of leather waste helps stop the fast fashion cycle and minimises waste generation. By diverting leather scraps from landfills and integrating them into new products or materials, we mitigate the environmental impact of excessive consumption.

Promoting the Circular Economy: Harnessing leather and embracing principles of repair, reuse, and repurposing align with the principles of the circular economy. By maximising resource efficiency and minimising waste, we cultivate a regenerative economic model that benefits both society and the environment.

World Leather Day is an opportunity to celebrate genuine leather while reaffirming our commitment to sustainable practices and move towards a more conscientious and eco-friendly future.
