‘Sustainable use’ means ‘using the bio-ecosystem or other renewable resources within the range of the regeneration capacity.’ From that point of view, we only use animals raised for food such as cows, horses, sheep and pigs. All leather textures are created by own original processing method.

Material: Steer- and calf leather and sheepskin.
