Leather and synthetic materials
Leather, as a raw material for making consumer products, is a biophilic material, that is, it reconnects us with nature, because its origin is natural.
Natural materials, such as leather, are critical to limiting the climate impacts of consumable materials, especially in comparison to synthetic materials based on fossil fuels.
Leather is biodegradable and a sustainable alternative to synthetic materials made from plastics. As a biophilic material, its origin from natural materials reconnects us with nature and limits the climate impact of consumable materials. At the end of its useful life, leather will biodegrade, limiting its impact and mitigating harmful emissions, such as microplastic pollution often associated with synthetic materials.
