Consumption happens. This is especially true in the fashion industry as there is often a relentless push toward “newness”. Brands hurriedly produce styles only to toss them aside soon after in favor of the next new style.
At Leatherology, we have an entirely different design ethos. We focus on timeless pieces that are wearable today, tomorrow, and for years to come. We intentionally design to discourage the constant churn of fast fashion.
We like the phrase “thoughtful consumption” because it’s honest and reflective. As a brand, it is our responsibility to take a more thoughtful approach to design and production to minimize our footprint.
We source only the highest quality materials to ensure durability. Materials like our full-grain leather and organic cotton canvas can sustain long-term wear, eliminating the need to replace them seasonally.
However, it is not just about how long something lasts, but how it’s made. We asked ourselves, how can we make leather production more sustainable and environmentally conscious? How do we improve upon a centuries-old process? The short answer is through thoughtful consumption.
We embed thoughtfulness into each step of the product lifecycle:
These are just a few of the steps we are taking to become a more conscious and responsible company. In the months ahead, we’re excited to dig deeper into each one and provide you more transparency on how we operate as a business.
Leatherology began as a desire to create accessibly priced, beautifully designed accessories that are timeless, complete, and lasting. We cannot truly realize this goal without being more intentional about every part of our process - from design, sourcing and production to packaging, shipping and fulfillment.
This is not a sprint. This is a marathon. And we are committed to doing better while we create accessories that will continue to elevate the everyday for years to come.
