The best products also carry the most interesting stories.
Buildings, furniture, food and design all share a need for high quality materials. Houses need a solid foundation the same way a dish needs nutritious raw ingredients in order for the flavors to reach their full potential. Without a strong commitment to its materials, fashion risks becoming fleeting and ephemeral. Something we have set out to change.
One way is to incorporate traceability as the foundation. In our case, this entails tracing leather back to the specific animal involved and invite you - our client - to take part in this storytelling. The delivery of your leather goods begins with a journey back in time, going all the way to the farm or slaughterhouse if you wish.
It may seem brutal to discuss death in regards to leather goods, but in order to create fully functional ecosystems, we must be open for harsh truths. The more we know, the smarter we can design and the better you can engage with the stories already being told. Together, we improve the lives of the animals by decreasing the need for leather using education.
Our launch product, shoe model "Andrew" is an international record-breaker. This type of leather product is the most difficult to make traceable. This is due to the highly complex leather supply chain and leather type qualities that is required within commercial supply chains.
Crafted in accordance with traditional methods, this shoe combines advanced craftmanship with animal protection, which has taken us ' three years in total to achieve and four years to have ready for our clients.
Numbers with stories to tell
Each leather footwear and leather goods come with their own unique number combination. Unique per product and owner. This number combination allows you, upon delivery, to trace the different leather parts back to the exact animals involved in our digital membership area.
