This product is entirely made with recycled and renovated leather. This is genuine leather, made from natural hides which were discarded during the manufacturing process for other products (usually high-end fashion production). The leather fibers are tanned using vegetable-based substances, natural latex (extracted from rubber plants), water, natural fats and natural coloring agents and salts. This process is more involved than standard industrial leather production but is both friendlier to the environment and produces goods which are free from toxic or non-natural substances. The end result is both an exceptionally high-quality product, which is durable, strongly fade-resistant and supple.
