Leather is made from a by-product (recycle) and a long-lasting (durable) material, two very important aspects of sustainability.
Leather is a sustainable product by origin because it is a natural by-product from the meat industry. The leather industry creates a unique material from a skin that would otherwise mostly end up as landfill.
Leather that is properly made and sourced is a truly sustainable material.
Leather can be a sustainable, circular and biodegradable material when using the right chemicals.
The leather industry is a highly regulated industry with responsible value chain partners manufacturing leather under tightly controlled auditing programs that are supportive to raise the standard of modern leather manufacturing.
At ooobaby Luxe Handbags, our leather is sourced from a leather manufacturer audited according to these standards and increasingly demand them to use chemicals that are certified. The growing importance of these standards is crucial for the leather industry to ensure that brands, designers and consumers value leather as a sustainable and unique material.
