Crafting Watch Straps from

Sustainably-Sourced Leathers

Our Commitment to Sustainability

At Artisan Straps, we take pride in our commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing practices. We believe in the importance of minimising our environmental footprint while delivering high-quality products to our customers.

That's why we work exclusively with tanneries that uphold the highest standards of environmental responsibility and animal welfare. Our leathers are sourced from tanneries that prioritize sustainable practices, including responsible water usage, waste management, and the use of eco-friendly tanning processes.

By choosing Artisan Straps, you can trust that your purchase not only supports artisan craftsmanship but also contributes to a more sustainable and ethical industry.

Tannery Audits

Every leather hide we purchase originates from a tannery that is a member of consortium committed to sustainable practices in the production of leather. These tanneries are audited annually to ensure these high sustainability standards are met.

Globally, the Leather Working Group are a non-for-profit organisation promoting a sustainable future in leather production. For more information, the Leather Working Groups Website can be found here:

Italian Vegetable-tanned Leather Consortium

With the production of vegetable-tanned leather being heavily concentrated in Tuscany, Italy, they have established their own consortium to promote sustainable practices in Italy. This is known as the Consorzio Vera Pelle Italiana Conciata al Vegetale.

Over time, this label has also become a trademark for high quality vegetable-tanned leather.
