La Pelle’s sustainable leather handbags can be seen throughout our business operations and global supply chain.
Sourcing leathers from Italian tanneries reflects La Pelle’s commitment to sustainability. The environmental and social values demonstrated by European leather keeps Italian tanners ahead of International competition. Sustainability of leather production is essentially based on the following pillars:
– Developing new products and chemical systems. These components are largely based on renewable raw materials;
– Reduced consumption of chemicals;
– Improving processes by reducing energy and water requirements. Making more efficient use of chemicals. Finding new ways of using by-products;
– Constantly improving leather properties in terms of sustainability during and after use. Longer service life. Lower leather consumption and recycling possibilities.
