Chromefree bovine leather is soft and light. Coming from farms located in southern Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul), it undergoes an innovative tanning process in which chromium, heavy metals or hazardous acids does not intervene. Simplifying the tanning process, the use of chemical and energy products is limited, water use is reduced by approximately 40 % and the use of salt by 80 %. After tanning, the water is recyclable. Chromefree leather is used throughout the children's leather collection.
The suede is made from the bottom of the beef skin previously brushed to make it softer and more flexible. It comes from farms from southern Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul). It is tanned in Brazil, respecting REACH standards. Special attention is paid to the use of water during the tanning process. The suede is also covered with hydrophic oils without PFC (chemical compounds) to protect light rain shoes.
