Where does your New Zealand leather come from?

Our vegetable tanned New Zealand cow leather comes from the pastures of Oamaru in Otago, and Invercargill in Southland, and is a by-product of the grass-fed food industry here in New Zealand. Our farmers work hand-in-hand with nature to ensure luxurious leather, while sustaining an environmental legacy to be passed on to generations to come.

How is it dyed?

Our New Zealand leather is purposefully created with a neutral PH, this leather is completely biodegradable due to a special tannage made from natural vegetable oils and cashew extracts. (making this leather perfect for those with sensitive skin). It is dyed in India near to where our workshop is situated, in a tannery that holds the BSCI and Leather Working Group (Gold) certifications. These unique pieces are also non-allergenic and anti-viral, and age beautifully.

How are the leather bags in 'Coming Home' traceable?

We have integrated our supply chain journey into the blockchain to produce a traceable product story. When you scan the QR codes on the back of the hangtags attached to each piece in this collection, you will see the entire journey of each bag and wallet, from where it is sourced to where it is packed before it comes to your door.

How can I get it?

Our Sienna Single Crossbody Bag, Sienna Triple Crossbody Bag and Winona Wallet are all made from New Zealand leather, and lined using handprinted organic cotton.
