We fully control the entire production of our leather goods. This means we can ensure that all our products are of the right quality, that our production is as sustainable as possible and that our employees work in the best possible conditions.
All our leather goods are produced in our factory in Kolkata, India. The factory is 5,000 m2 and is powered by the solar cells on the roof, which is one of the main reasons why we can proudly say that our production is 100% CO2 neutral. Another reason is that our artisans make all our products by hand, using traditional methods that require minimal use of energy-intensive machinery.
We have 700+ skilled and trained artisans working in our factory. It is thanks to them that we can deliver leather goods of the absolute best quality. We believe that a happy and engaged workforce is the key to our company’s success. That’s why every person in our organisation is important to us, and why we go beyond the requirements of the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) and SA800 (Social Accountability International) standards for our factory workers. By providing benefits such as health insurance for key workers and their families, we want to ensure both job satisfaction and peace of mind.
OUR COMMITMENT TO REACh
All of our products and production exceed European standards and guidelines. Our production processes are all REACh certified (“Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals”), to regulate the use of harmful substances of very high concern ensuring these are restricted in the production of our goods, and exclude potential threats to both human health and the environment.
CONFORMITY TO BSI. 14001
The British Standards Institution’s (BSI) principal activity is to ensure organisations adhere to high manufacturing standards through the implementation of critical environmental guidelines and codes of practices over time.
Through our ISO 14001 environmental management compliance, we continue to make eco-efficiency savings by improving our infrastructure and reducing waste which creates a more engaged and motivated workforce, reduces plastic in seas, pollution and contaminated lands.
COMPLIANCE WITH BSI. 9001
Quality management is about understanding, or exceeding, customer requirements in a structured, codified, systematic and repeatable way. Our Quality Management System compliance enables us to deliver consistency of production, drive efficiency, reduce waste and gives our business a framework for continual improvement, all of which enables us to continue providing category leading luxury and functional products.
Examples of these improvements include identifying the risks and opportunities in our delivery, in our marketplace, to our business, and mitigating threats.
