Working with sustainable materials is our passion. We offer three materials matching our ethics.
THE VEGAN PIÑATEX
Our VEGAN COLLECTION is made from an innovative, natural and sustainable non-woven textile made from pineapple leaf fibers as a green and animal friendly alternative to leather and petroleum based materials. The material is called Piñatex™.
It is a vegan leather alternative!
The pineapple leaves are a by-product of the pineapple harvest, which means no extra water, fertilizers or pesticides are required and the waste of the harvest is minimized.
This textile is water resistant, strong, versatile, breathable, soft, light, flexible, and has passed the ISO international standards tests for: seam rupture, tear resistance, tensile strength, light and colour fastness and abrasion resistance.

VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER
Our ECO LEATHER COLLECTION uses purely natural substances for tanning such as roots, bark, and leaves from olive trees, oak and rhubarb – thus the leather remains a noble and safe product of nature.
The surface is breathable, feels warm and supple, and is free of carcinogenic or allergenic chemicals.
We obtain our vegetable tanned leather locally from Spanish leather factories with a long tradition of artisanal vegetable tanning methods.
It is one of the most environmentally friendly leathers worldwide.
Every hide is a naturally unique piece and is allowed to display its lifecycle in the form of uneven wrinkles and scars – naturalness mustn’t be hidden.
As a result, every bag matures to an individual one-of-a-kind piece by light, time and touch.

THE WOOD VENEER
Our WOOD material is one of the most valuable natural products. Every tree and every type of wood has its own individual characteristics and shows the traces of evolution. Carefully hand-selected veneer and excellence in high level wood processing are the basis for an innovative material with incredible softness, a luxury look and an impressive texture. The result is a completely new material out of walnut wood that is hugely soft and flexible.
The material is made from thin sheets of wood which are bonded to a bio-cotton fabric using an environmentally friendly adhesive. Micro laser cutting turns selected woods into a unique soft material experience.
Influenced by Italian style and German technology it is a creation of a completely innovative material.
The WOOD COLLECTION is characterized by its claim to sustainability as all the wood that is processed comes from forests that are managed ethically and with respect for the whole ecosystem. FSC® certification guarantees the traceability and origin of the wood.
It is environmentally friendly, biodegradable and 100% animal free.

To keep your Piñatex™ bag in top condition, it is recommended to wax it before use and thereafter on a regular basis by using a natural wax (the manufacturer of the material recommends Barbour-Wax).
Waxing the material is not only for protection, but it also gives the material a soft patina which you'll love.
After application, leave it in a warm place for 24 hours and rub it gently with a soft cloth.
Any soiling should be cleaned with water using a damp soft cloth or sponge.
Do not use heaters or similar hot items as the material might dry out.
Leather is a natural material with similar characteristics like our skin. Irregularities in color and structure are based on the naturalness of the leather and are a typical quality feature.
To keep your eco leather bag in top condition, it is recomanded to treat your bag with neutral color leather fat or with a waterproofing spray on a regular basis.
Beware of heat sources such as ovens or radiators!
Never use stain water, solvents, turpentine or shoe polish, as they will all affect the color of the leather or even rub off on clothing.
If the leather of your bag has a stain, first try to rub gently with clean, lukewarm water. If this does not have the desired effect, take mild soapy water.
Gently remove grease stains with a dry cloth or kitchen paper. If that does not succeed, do not despair! Most fatty stains disappear by themselves over time!
Please note that suede must be treated differently than smooth leather. Here you can scrub out stains with a special eraser.
We also strongly recommend treating the bag with an impregnating spray before use and repeating it at regular intervals.
As a natural product and normal with wood veneer, it has different variations of grain depending on its location within the log.
The manufacturer recommends to only clean it with a damp sponge or similar. Although the fabric has been tested by the manufacturer, it should be noted that, as is always the case with new materials, no long-term practical experience is yet available.
For smaller scratches you can take a walnut kernel and rub it over the damaged area. A simple furniture polish also helps to nurture the material.
