Is using leather sustainable and where do you get the leather from?
Leather is byproduct of the food industry, by using this material it is diverted from the landfill. The leather used to make MAMEYO bags and accessories is from tanneries in the US and Italy. I (Maxine) hand pick the hides personally to ensure the best quality leather possible, to create durable pieces that will last for years to come. It is important to me that if needed, the pieces can be repaired rather than replaced.
When it comes to making bags and accessories majority of my products are made to order, minimizing the waste of material. I try to use as much of the hide as possible, larger offcuts are used for wallets, purses and interior pockets while smaller offcuts are used for keychains or accent pieces. And when I have time tree decorations.
One of my goals for 2020 was to launch the Reclaimed Collection. This collection focuses on using production offcuts from upholsters in the Greater Vancouver area to create iconic bags and accessories with the minimal use of new leather. My hope is for the Reclaimed Collection to be a permanent collection and to expand the variety of styles as time goes on. When it comes to packaging I’ve made it one of my 2021 goals to repurpose and reuse as much as possible.
