--- Why camel leather? Our choice to use camel leather is intentional as they require up to 40X less water than cows, which significantly reduces their impact on the environment. Camel leather is up to 3X stronger than cow leather, and much softer. The camel leather we use is ethically-sourced and chemical-free. Up to 80% of the water used in the tanning process is recycled, and the waste is composted.
All of our designs are completely made by hand without machines.
