Real Leather is Greener than Imitations

Processing hides from livestock into leather is one of the oldest practiced forms of recycling. Hides are natural and inevitable by-products of meat and diary consumption.

Rather, the industry purchases these hides - which other wise would go to waste - and transforms them into durable, versatile and beautiful real leather.
