Selecting Ethical Partners
Each of our bags is handcrafted by artisans, and we only partner with suppliers after being able to confirm their safety, health, and fair working conditions. We only partner with tanneries and artisan workshops that strive to reduce their environmental footprint and care for their employees. As part of the Leather Working Group (LWG), our tanneries follow a strict employee code of conduct and are working towards aggressive goals in reducing water pollution, increasing water-use efficiency, and minimizing chemical waste.
Our partners in Italy also invest in the future of their craft and give back to the community. They sponsor an artisan and technician training school and have developed an apprenticeship program to work with students who will become the next generation of master artisans.
