Respect For Planet
Our Saved Leather
We source remaining lots of leather that are rejected by very strict rules of well known international fashion houses. We save this leather and cut around the damage.
If we had to pay the normal price for this, our bags would be twice as expensive.
Fortunately that's not the case at the moment.
A win-win for the all of us !
Our Circular Stitching Yarns
The innovative premium yarns from our handcrafted bags are made by our American-German yarn-and-textile partnerwith more than 150 years of history with the vision to make the world a better place by developing 100% sustainable stitching yarns.
PET-bottles are converted into a regenerated stitching yarn after consumption via an advanced purification process. This yarn can again be recycled indefinitely with any loss of material quality.
Let us inform you:
1- The raw-material are obtained from recycled PET-bottles. 2- The PET-bottles are washed and chopped into flakes. 3- When the flakes are melted down, they turn into granules. 4- The granules are processed into recycled-raw-materials. 5- The recycled sewing threads transformed into our sustainable sewing threads
Our ReCycled Tags & ReUsed Logos
The P&D tags are made from the parts of leather that we recycle. A very simple circular production in which we reduce our waste to almost zero.
From Leather-Bag-Trade-In-Campaigns To Retail-Ready-Tags
Our handcrafted natural leather bags are made from the large pieces of saved leather but the P&D logos are made from the small parts that remain. A very simple production in which we reduce our waste to almost Zero
Our Natural Cotton Linings
What comes up close is finally better for the environment. For the European market, we consciously choose European picked cotton for the inner-lining of our handcrafted leather bags. The cotton-workers are paid fairly according to Western-European standards.
Where possible we keep the footprint as low as possible !
Our Recycled Anti-Bacterial Hardware
It's not commonly known that a metal exists that kills bacteria directly on contact without the need for disinfectants. On most hard surfaces viruses can live for four to five days. But when viruses and bacteria attach themselves to copper and its alloys, such as solid brass, they are eliminated with hours.
Solid copper-rich-brass is a high anti-microbial product.
Since 2017 we're presenting zipper-pullers made from recycled brushed brass hardware and naturally anti-bacterial !
Our Sustainable Zippers
Our ancestors used in the past metal-zippers from the TAR Factory. A Dutch factory-brand, located at the Bellamy Street, Amsterdam.
But times have changed. Step by step we have switched to the high-quality durable zippers from YKK Japan.
From old-school zippers to sustainable zippers ! Why not ?
Our Natural Leather Care EssentialsWe all try to take care of our body but, please, remind that also our natural leather goods need attention and affection. Our natural handpoured leather care essentials will help you in protecting your leather goods from external agents and safeguarding the softness of the natural leather and the uniqueness of your goods.
Our advice is to use 100% natural and pH-balanced care products.
Safe for Leather & Skin, Naturally 100% Natural
Our Recyclable & Reusable Materials
Our aluminium cans are an infinitely recyclable material and it takes up to 95 percent less energy to recycle than to produce primary aluminium.
Never throw aluminium in the trash.
Cherish it ! Let's move together to Zero.
Our cardboard boxes are more than just a regular box. Our boxes are produced by our partners with FSC-materials ensuring the cardboard comes from recycled sources and the wood from well managed forests. Together we gave cardboard materials a second life.
We would appreciate it if you give the third life to the cardboard. Thank you in advance.
