Our way of maintaining a healthier, happier planet.
The leather industry is among the most harmful in the fashion business, and with no shortage in demand, it will only continue to pollute. Some vegan alternatives may be a better option, but the most common type is petroleum-based. This can be harmful to human health, and it is not biodegradable.
At Opus Mind, we strive for a better standard. In order to promote a more circular fashion industry, we had to find a way to produce a less harmful leather alternative, so we got back to basics. As it turns out, the answer was right in front of us.
Step 1: Partner with Recyc Leather
The leather starts as unused glove scraps that ordinarily go to waste. The leftovers are combined with natural latex from rubber trees, and infused with water and color pigments. A sort of Renaissance for the material.
Step 2: Get it to Italy
After our leather travels to Italy, we begin the process of making our product. Our partners handcraft each piece with care and precision. The outcome is a product that has reduced emissions and looks beautiful.
Step 3: Into your hands
Finally, we get the transformed product directly to you. We're as excited as you are! We have helped to secure a better future by choosing to go with environmentally friendly materials. That's a win-win in our books.
