Fashion is one of the most polluting industries globally.

The fashion industry accounts for up to 10% of global carbon dioxide emissions, more than what is generated by international flights and maritime shipping combined, according to the United Nations Environment Programme.

Additionally, it contributes to 1/5 of the 300 million tons of plastic produced annually worldwide. Polyester, a type of petroleum-based plastic, has surpassed cotton as a cornerstone of textile production.

It is estimated that in 2015, the textile and clothing industry used 79 billion cubic meters of water globally, while in 2017, the water demand for the entire European Union's economy amounted to 266 billion cubic meters.

It is of paramount importance to find sustainable and alternative solutions

The leather industry, the only material we use, has a significant environmental impact.

In fact, data indicates that European tanneries consume an average of 2.15 kg of chemicals and the energy equivalent of 2.04 liters of petroleum per square meter of leather.

Additionally, 120 liters of water and 29.5 grams of solvents are used per square meter of leather.

The idea of giving new life to this material through a process with a minimal environmental footprint is what drove us to seek a solution and embark on this project.

Our environmental impact

The impact of our supply chain, calculated per product, is attributed solely to the manufacturing stage. The transportation of our items to customers is fully covered by the GoGreen Solutions program by DHL, which enables us to eliminate CO₂ emissions through the use of sustainable fuels.

By utilizing upcycled leather, we avoid applying new chemical treatments that would contribute to air, water, and soil pollution.

As a result, the environmental impact is minimal.
