Is the manufacturing process of your collection free from child labour and human trafficking, are all workers paid a living wage, and is the factory compliant with all local environmental regulations?
If your collection contains any animal-sourced textiles and hides, are all hides and textiles sourced as a co-product of meat, fishing or population control of wild animals or free-range farming? (ONLY applies if you use animal products)
Is your collection free from AZO dyes and phthalates? (This will mainly apply to apparel and accessories)
Is your collection made exclusively in your studio or by an artisan collective of fewer than 10 people? There should be a focus on preserving artisanal production methods and skilled workers in order to qualify.
Are all items in your collection made from at least 80% of material, textiles or ingredients from organic farming?
Does at least 1% of all sales of your collection go to a charity partner? This must be a formalised aspect of your business model.
Is your collection manufactured on a small scale in an environmentally sensitive manner, from non-synthetic, sustainably sourced materials, ingredients or textiles e.g. beeswax, silk? (all must apply)
Does your collection use recycled, recyclable packaging and no plastics? (all must apply, and if your collection results in zero waste from the manufacturing process please tick this box)
Are you a carbon neutral business? This requires a certification.
For the first month of use, it is important to avoid taking the handbag out in the rain. This should give the fibres sufficient time to become more flexible and therefore less likely to react to water. After the first month of use, any spots of water or rain can be gently wiped into the leather, rather than allowing droplets to just sit on the surface.
As the leathers are dyed, for the first few wears they may transfer a small amount of colour onto clothing. This is a typical characteristic of vegetable tanned leathers and will mean that the bag ages beautifully.
Our natural (i.e. nude and camel) leather products will patina over time resulting in a darker, uneven colouration. Leather fans will recognise this as the ultimate sign of quality. The process itself can be quickened but should not and cannot be avoided.
To clean the bag, it the best if you purchase a cream from the various online leather care outlets. You should always use a neutral, rather than a particular colour (which will contain a dye) and test on an inconspicuous area of the handbag.
All of the hardware on our bags is made from solid brass cast in Java. Just like the vegetable tanned leather, it will darken over time as the metal oxidises in the atmosphere. Should you wish to polish it back up, you can use any readily available brass polish, making sure that you protect the leather first with a protective cloth.
