Taking responsible steps towards a sustainable future through transparent thought and action has never been more vital – for all our sakes and for the generations to come.
And when it comes to the manufacture of leather, sustainability has to be at the forefront – after all, leather is (not) just a natural product.
Our aspiration: to avoid altogether the use of tanning chemicals which can harm our health and our environment. Chemicals used for all conventional leather processing methods in mass production.
We should all be aware that leather products coming into direct contact with our skin may contain high levels of toxic hexavalent chrome and other allergens.
We at wet-green® have developed a purely ecological leather tanning agent and an associated tanning process.
This new discovery has allowed us to produce leather to the very finest standard of quality using renewable raw materials – setting a whole new standard in terms of sustainability.
... our wet-green® OBE tanning agent is prepared in a similar way to a natural tea extract.
This extract is produced using only a by-product of the olive cultivation industry – the leaves.
... and the best thing: the wet-green® tanning process permits the manufacture of biologically degradable premium leather with optimum skin compatibility – on an industrial scale.
A growing and continuously evolving environmental awareness among consumers is forcing producers and their brands to focus their attention on ecological considerations.
The future clearly belongs to green production methods, transparent cycles and products with the right ecological credentials.
It belongs to companies who take responsibility as manufacturers for their products, their environment and for future generations.
