It’s the responsibility of the fashion industry to inspire consumers to make more ethical buying choices - by giving them the option of doing so.
We adore the sleek, supple, long-lasting nature of luxury leather goods. The ethical and environmental compromises that come with owning them can no longer be ignored.
The LO range is entirely free from animal products.
The outer material for our bags and accessories was developed in Italy, as a response to the rising demand for ethical leather goods. Like leather, it’s lightweight, durable, breathable and takes on character with age. Unwanted waste destroys the environment. We recycle discarded plastic bottles and transform them into the lining for our bags. We harness knowledge passed down through five generations of leather craftsmen and apply it to modern materials. Creating valued possessions of outstanding quality and high ethical standards. With no compromise.
Intensive cattle rearing contributes to water and food scarcity, deforestation, greenhouse gases, antibiotic resistance and ground spoiling by toxic chemicals. According to The Pulse of the Fashion Industry 2017 report, published by Global Fashion Agenda & The Boston Consulting Group, PU synthetic leathers have a third of the cradle-to-grave environmental impact of cow leather - and a lower impact than silk, cotton, wool and modal fabrics.
We believe that businesses have the power to shape a more positive world for all. Every partner we work with is carefully selected to ensure they share our values, provide good jobs for their employees and strive to minimise the impact they have on the environment.
