Q: What is eco-leather?
A: Eco-leather is our same high-quality leather, but tanned via a resource-efficient process that significantly reduces water consumption, wastewater pollution, CO2 emissions and waste.
Q: How is eco-leather different than leather?
A: Both leather and eco-leather are made from animal hides, however, instead of using a traditional hide preservation process, eco-leather uses a more eco-friendly tanning method, eliminating salt and ultimately the salt-rinsing process. As a result, we significantly reduce water usage in the tanning process (validated by a Life Cycle Assessment). Additionally, eco-leather helps reduce carbon emissions in transportation as we can increase the material quantity while reducing weight.
Q: Is eco-leather vegan?
A: No. Eco-leather is not vegan.
Q: Is eco-leather a plastic?
A: No. Eco-leather is 100% leather with NO plastic or polyurethane.
Q: Does the eco-leather break in at all?
A: Yes, eco-leather is leather so it will soften and wear-in as beautifully as our traditional leathers.
