Organic leather is very popular as many people become more ethically inclined when choosing their brands and products (see ethical consumer trends here). With that being said what makes a leather product (be it a bag, a purse, or even a belt) organic? Find out below.

Key Features Organic Leather Products

For a leather product to be considered organic, it must have:
  • been sourced from organically reared cattle.
  • be tanned without harmful chemicals.

Chemical tanning using chromium accounts for more than 90% of the world's leather production, while vegetable tanning is now at less than 10% of market share.

Why choose organic leather?

Organic leather is more ethical, because it uses less harmful chemicals that can have waste that damages the environment, and it takes care of the animals that we receive the leather from, ensuring their quality of life. You can find out more about Von Baer bags here.
