I completely understand that women need to do a lot of research before they purchase a handbag - because it quite simply is a huge investment. It’s like a marriage of style, you’re going to have it forever and it needs to follow your life’s journey along-side you, quite literally.

There are several methods that are used when tanning leather, and sadly, within the fashion industry, the most popular is chrome tanning. Many brands use this cheapest, mass produced and most toxic form of leather tanning, as it is a much quicker process than the traditional vegetable tanning process. The result being the use of chromium salts that are unsustainable for the environment and harmful to not only the people and places that make it, but to you too.
