Why camel leather?
Our choice to use camel leather is intentional. The camel leather we use is ethically-sourced, which means camels are not raised for leather.
Also, our camel leather is tanned using a chrome-free process. Avoiding the use of toxic chemicals to make this leather allows the tannery to recycle 80% of the water and to compost the waste. From an environmental standpoint, this is very important. On the sustainability side, it is also important to note that camels require up to 40X less water than cows, which significantly reduces their impact on the environment.
Cool fact: Camel leather is up to 3X stronger than cow leather, and softer.
Every one of our items is completely designed and made by hand without machines in our California studio.
