No, we do not offer any vegan leather options at this time, however, that's definitely on our radar! We do have vegetable tanned leather bags, and most of our leather soles are vegetable tanned as well. Vegetable tanning is a process that uses tannins and other ingredients found in different vegetable matter, such as tree bark, wood, leaves, fruits, and roots. It's an old-world, artisanal process that's free of harmful chemicals.
We are conscious of where and how we are sourcing our materials, which is why we are currently conducting a thorough investigation of our supply chain down to the the farm level. Our team has visited and vetted all of our factories and leather tanneries for their social and environmental practices, and is excited to report that most of our tanneries have been certified through the Leather Working Group, a well respected third party that certifies tanneries for exceptional social and environmental practices.
You can view our Impact Report for more information regarding our supply chain. We welcome all conversation surrounding the social and environmental impact of our products.
