MATERIALS

We are using nature-based materials with minimal ecological impact.


Leather


Elk leather is from Finland. Wild living elks are hunted during limited period of time based on government issued quota to control the animal population and to maintain balanced eco-system. Elks are hunted for the meat and the skin is by-product that has long been over looked and mostly thrown away as waste.

Reindeer leather is from Finland. Reindeer herding is traditional way of life in North- and North-East of Finland. Freely moving reindeers are kept for the meat. The skin is a valued by-product of food processing.
