Responsibly produced leather
Since early 2021, we have been a proud member of the Leather Working Group. This association brings together different representatives from the leather industry who are committed to responsible production. In this way, we have laid the foundation for more sustainable products.

The Leather Working Group (LWG) is a membership organisation composed of brands, suppliers, leather manufacturers and other representatives from the leather processing industry. The LWG has developed an audit programme that certifies tanneries based on their environmental performance and efficiency.

For our products, we assume ecological responsibility by using leather that is not only robust and durable, but also responsibly produced. Our suppliers use tanneries that are certified members of the Leather Working Group and have received the highest medals in the ranking system- the Gold Standard and the Silver Standard.

With our new collection launching in May 2022, we will source 100% of our leather from tanneries certified by the Leather Working Group. This means that all the leather products we offer our customers are certified – without exception.

As a matter of principle, we have always consciously avoided the use of exotic leather from endangered species. Instead, we rely on high-quality leather with crocodile and reptile finishes.

Consistent reduction of chemicals
In our bags, there’s room for lots of things – except chemicals that endanger people and the environment. For those chemicals that are currently still essential to production, we work with clear rules and regulations to ensure they are used and handled more responsibly.
SAFE PRODUCTS
At the product level, we use a restricted substances list (RSL). This list contains clear specifications for banned harmful substances as well as threshold values for any residual chemical substances in the end product. It follows the AFIRM Group. guidelines. The marketability of our products is guaranteed by compliance with the legal limit values (according to REACH regulations and consumer goods regulations, among others).
THE USE OF CHEMICALS IN PRODUCTION
In addition to the RSL, which applies to substances in the end product, we require all our suppliers to comply with the Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL). This list was developed by the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals initiative (ZDHC) for chemical management in production plants. The MRSL details the limit values for chemicals and mixtures used in factory manufacturing processes. This enables us to reduce the use of substances that are harmful to health or the environment in production.
