Where are your materials sourced?Updated 2 years ago

We source our leather from small US farms where cows roam free. Because of this, the hides we source have scratch marks, insect bites, as a result of the natural occurrences that transpired during the animal’s life. We believe this is what gives character to the leather and tells a unique story. So instead of hiding all the natural marks, we maintain these imperfections and the integrity of the leather through a custom-made double tanning process. This process is also in line with our aim at lowering our Carbon Footprint. Keeping leather as natural as possible avoids a large dump of chemicals on leather.
