What is Green Leather?
Green Leather is responsibly produced high quality leather.
Rather than opting for plastic-based and environment degrading faux-leather concepts such as polyurethane or vegan leather, GREEN LEATHER ensures that responsibly and sustainably produced leather is a far better choice for the environment. After all, the everlasting charm of leather cannot be replicated
Why Green Leather?
The leather product’s industry has been plagued since its inception by social and environmental stigma with reference to cultural beliefs and chemical treatments involved. In addition, the image of merciless slaughtering of animals has always been associated with all leather products.
Tanning is a chemical process used by the leather products industry to transform perishable hides and skins into durable leather. Unfortunately, as a result of high competition, a lot of brands and manufacturing units use production methods that increase efficiency but at the same time pose a threat to the environment. These methods release a slush of chemicals and gases into the environment. This is so noxious that strict regulations have been imposed by European and American governments.
What is Victor Dorr doing for this?
Victor Dorr has been consistently working on creating a transparent, responsible and sustainable supply chain to provide a guilt-free and everlasting high-fashion experience for its customers. All of our leather is procured from sustainable farms within India. Our tanneries have been approved by European and North American standards such as IMS, ISO, OEKO-TEX and SEDEX for efficient utilisation of natural resources and organic chemicals for treatment.
Following the guidelines issued by the GREEN LIFE project, Victor Dorr’s treatment mechanisms reduce water wastage by 20%, sulfate consumption by 80% and an overall lower environmental impact.
The stitching and assembly is completed at Victor Dorr’s manufacturing unit which is equipped with solar power to the extent of 40% of total electricity requirement. The goal of 100% solar dependence will be achieved by October 2021.
