SWISS ORGANIC LEATHER
Our goal is the promotion and maintenance of the Swiss leather production. The label states that the leather used comes from 100% Swiss origin.
Skins of small animals are usually discarded as waste in Switzerland. We want to work to ensure that this valuable commodity is regaining attention. Goatskin, for example, is very light and resistant. By the almost square shape of the skin hardly waste is generated, and it is suitable ideal for small products like the feuil MONET or feuil POCHETTE.
The leather of our products comes from 100% in Switzerland. We include it in one of the last tanneries in Switzerland, which is tanned environmentally (without chrome) and specializing in small animal skins. Since the beginning of our cooperation, we are also themselves with farmers in touch and bring your skins made available for further processing in the tannery.
We are currently working directly with farmers following together:
- Biohof of Rütte-Gut in Sutz am Bielersee
- Schumacher's organic farm on the St. Peter's Island
- Burenziegenhof in Rüti b. Riggisberg
THE COLOR Our leather is not colored in the Emmental. It is the last tannery in Switzerland who still own colored leather. The leather is dyed in a retanning process and greased. The greasing causes the leather supple. At the end of the leather are provided with a slight finish, this prevents fading of the color, also arises in a fixed surface of the leather.
