Reduced Waste, Sustainable Materials
& Social Responsibility


Eco-friendly & Sustainable

Environmentally Friendly

Animal-Free Vegetarian Leather



Sustainable Development is vital for the need to protect our environment. By using sustainable materials, we can help protect the planet we live in and reduce the carbon footprint of the products we manufacture. The way we design our products during development can also be optimized to use the minimum amount of materials in order to reduce waste.




The way we use our materials during manufacturing must be done by ensuring that any smaller materials can be reused and repurposed into smaller projects and products, therefore keeping our waste down to a minimum. For example, we use offcut materials and reuse them into smaller accessories, for example keyring and bookmarks.




We’re using our planet’s resources faster than ever before. We need to keep all of our resources circulated and in use for as long as feasibly possible, by recycling wherever possible. Reusing products and upscaling into new products is a good way to continue the lifecycle of a product, as well as avoiding harm to our environment.
