Sustainable Genuine Leather
Why genuine leather is sustainable compared to “faux leather” flooding the market?
There are many reasons. To begin with, the leather we use is a secondary by-product of other industries like dairy and meat. We follow processes and tanning in the most eco-friendly manner (LWG Audited).
Genuine leather lasts longer, compared to “faux leather” products. Hence the use is sustainable with lesser wastage or repeated purchases.
Genuine leather is biodegradable, unlike faux-leather.
Polyurethane or PVC used to make the vegan leather (faux leather) has it’s own environmental pollution problems (with plasticizers etc). Faux leather takes far longer to break down or biodegrade and can release microplastics when it breaks down. Making faux leather from petrochemicals is not sustainable or renewable.
Genuine leather can be easily recycled or re-used, compared to faux leather.
