a natural material

Properly made and sourced leather is a truly sustainable material. Leather is made from a by-product of the food industry (recycle) and is a long-lasting material, two very important aspects of sustainability.

Leather is a sustainable, circular and compostable material when using the right chemicals. That is exactly what we offer with Zeology Leather.

Zeology Leather is leather tanned with Zeology, a game-changing tanning agent based on zeolites and free of chrome, aldehyde and heavy metals.

Compostable & biodegradable


Reducing our footprint

Imagine a beautiful bag from responsibly sourced leather, that is manufactured in a way that it could compost, biodegrade and return to nature. That is what Zeology leather is all about. Your used Zeology Leather bag or shoes can provide the soil with nutrients once the material has disintegrated into compost. Zeology Leather gives a proper compost within 15 days under industrial composting. It is also found to actually nourish the soil, delivering 20% stronger plant growth than a control compost.

Buy responsible

If you care for the Earth, you care about the material your shoe, bag, car seat or jacket is made of.
