Our leather is 100% cruelty-free and made of PU leather. By choosing not to use leather, we also hope to offer a more environmentally friendly alternative, specifically when it comes to travel accessories.
In many ways, PU leather is better for the environment than real leather, which uses toxic chemicals as dyes, and wreak havoc, often in vulnerable regions, where the need to grow animals and produce animal feed lead to deforestation. There is also the questionable debate of whether leather is truly a byproduct of the meat industry, and not the other way around, especially when considering that some exotic leathers account for the majority of the value of many farms.
We do acknowledge, however, that recyclable alternatives to leather are not without impact on the environment. Nevertheless, we are excited about the future of cruelty-free leathers. Innovative breakthroughs are happening with different ways to make PU leather from vegetable-based plastic to reducing the amount of petroleum used to produce them.
The way we see it, animal leather will always be dependent on animals. Whereas, there are infinite possibilities with vegan leather to innovate and become more environmentally-friendly. We are committed to exploring these avenues.
Seeing is believing
Vegan leather has come a long way. What seemed impossible just a few years ago is a reality now. Our PU leather is so good, it feel just like the real thing. Below are just some of the benefits of PU leather.
• Soft and rich and supple like leather
• Surface is microporous and allows the fabric to “breathe”
