ELW only sources leather that has been ethically and sustainably produced.

In order to source leather that has been ethically and sustainably produced, we only use leather from tanneries that respect human rights and follow sustainable practices. We also make sure that the tannery is FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council).

This certification ensures that the leather is from an FSC-certified forest, which means that it is sustainably managed and sourced. In order for a forest to be certified by FSC, it must meet the following requirements:

-The forest must be managed in a way that promotes biodiversity and ecosystem conservation.

-The forest should also be managed in a way that promotes the rights of indigenous communities.

-Companies must obtain permission from local communities before they start logging in their forests.

-The forest must also be managed in a way that promotes the rights of indigenous communities.
