Proud of our rich leatherworking heritage.

Leather has been used to make footwear for centuries, and we are proud to be a leather company. Beautiful, timeless, and long-lasting, responsibly managed leather is one of the best natural materials for footwear due to its warmth, comfort, and easy-to-clean reparability.

How is our leather more responsible?

  • We only use high-quality leathers that are by-products of the meat industry sourced from traceable suppliers.
  • We do not use skins and furs from endangered animals.
  • We avoid hazardous chemicals during the leather manufacturing process
  • Since 2013, we have been members of the Leather Working Group, an organization that is improving the environmental impact of the leather industry by assessing and certifying tanneries.
  • We are trialing different hides and techniques to reduce chemicals and waste.
  • We are replacing all leather linings with chrome-free leathers.
  • We have already introduced recycled leather, made from LWG leather scraps, to reduce waste.
