The Ethos

Kind Leather is the result of years of research to develop authentically sustainable leather. By merging concepts such as traceability and clean production, we have presented a new industrialisation concept that delivers a more sustainable and transparent value chain, from farm to end product.

This production system, in which the hide is a main source of collagen, means we are able to use only the most desirable parts of surface area to produce leather. With this approach the remaining sections are employed as raw materials in other major industries such as beauty and pharmaceuticals, thus minimising waste generation.

Unique Shape

This results in more efficient use of resources and improved leather quality, while substantially reducing the amount of water, energy and chemicals used. Concurrently, this also reduces greenhouse gas emissions and waste as part of a monitored production chain with end-to-end traceability.

Monitoring

A system capable of verifying conditions at each suppliers farm to identify and block the ones that do not comply with it’s social and environmental criteria. The system monitors official data from the government agencies and used satellite images and georeferenced farms to carry out a daily analysis of around 40,000 cattle suppliers based in the legal Amazon region.

In accordance with our public commitments, all processed leather is sourced from farms that:

  • Do not used force or slave analogous labor.
  • Are under environmental embargoes.
  • Are included in a cattle supplier social and environmental monitoring system.
  • Are not located in deforestation areas, indigenous lands, or in environmental protection areas.

The welfare of the cattle is paramount we ensure:

  • Freedom from stress or fear
  • Freedom from hunger, thirst and malnutrition
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom for pain, injury or disease
  • Freedom to express their normal behaviour

The Welfare

A team of welfare specialists monitor the welfare practices using techniques that are constantly being improved based on best market practices. Working together with the cattle growers, understanding that the animals must be properly taken care of throughout their whole life. There are numerous training actions provided for farmers, such as best practice manuals and animal welfare kits.
