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. Vegetable tanned leather is tanned using 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 any harmful chemicals. Additionally, all of our jewelry is made from upcycled brass and is vegan unless the title includes “bone”. Any bone in our jewelry is sourced ethically from animals that died of natural causes, and upcycled.
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 at the farm level.
We welcome all conversation surrounding the impact, both socially and environmentally, of our products. We work to ensure living wages, benefits, and healthy working conditions for all our producers. We also feel a responsibility to understand our supply chain and mitigate our environmental impact. We mostly work in underserved communities where ethical practices aren't as formalized, but we're actively using our purchasing power to form better relationships with local farmers and tanneries.
