At FJackets, we’ve kept our products in line with our vision by offering the finest quality sustainable leather goods in a variety of styles.

We get asked quite often about sustainable leather and what goes into making our products. Therefore, we would love to educate you about how we source leather in order to make fashion more sustainable. 

Sustainable leather was once considered an oxymoron, but it is now a reality thanks to improvement in the supply chain. 

WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE LEATHER?

Sustainable leather is the byproduct of local farming, which means the cattle were not raised explicitly to create leather products. In fact, leather is considered sustainable when it’s waste-preventative and resourceful. If the hide is not used, it’s typically just thrown out or burned, which is a big no for the environment.

We source our leather from local providers who treat their animals gently and with care. We also offer fair trade prices to farmers. Since our leather is sourced from local farm animals, our sourcing has a minimal environmental impact. Moreover, our products are handmade, and the processing has a low impact and is sustainable. We also believe in the ethical treatment of our employees who work with leather goods. It covers everything from providing safe working conditions and paying them fairly. Sustainability and ethics define FJackets and have ultimately led up to success.

WHAT IS “ECO FRIENDLY LEATHER”? WHAT IS LEATHER’S ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT?

“Eco-friendly” is the term used for leather that is derived from sources other alternatives such as plants, woods, and man-made material.

The downside to this so-called Eco-friendly leather is that it’s not sustainable. As derived from non-animal material, it needs to be processed with chemicals leaving behind huge industrial waste. Secondly, it’s not long-lasting, which means you’ll need to buy more often, resulting in more waste produced each year.

Sustainable leather better defines our brand ideology in terms of ecological, cultural, and economic sustainability. Our leather is sourced from real animals raised locally for food. We stand behind our products because it's long-lasting and made with best environmental practices such as local tanning process that recycles water and is non-artificial.

OUR SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN & GOOD BUSINESS OF GOOD ETHICS
