We are a value chain conscious business and ethically source our skins, from by-products of agriculture. We actively seek women-owned businesses to work with.

We also aim to minimize waste by developing products to optimize resources. We also offer a Made To Order service to reduce excess inventory.

We also believe in giving back to our communities – through donations to health (mental and physical) initiatives and supporting education.
