The tanning process of eco-friendly leather is comprised of a combination of synthetic tanning agents and natural vegetable extracts. In the making of our leathers, Patrick avoids the use of harmful chemicals like chromium, heavy metals, formaldehyde, short-chain chlorinated paraffin, volatile organic compounds, alkyl phenol ethoxylates and so on. The leather is tested regularly by an independent inspection agency, to check if they adhere to our sustainable standards.
The tannery treats the wastewater in their in-house plant before releasing it to district treatment plant, which helps ensure the water is clean before being returned into the environment. Among some innovative eco-friendly policies, they collect and use rainwater in their processes and have focused on energy efficiency. Even the design of the building of the tannery favors natural ventilation and lighting to save energy.
