It's important to know who are the people behind our products—that includes our raw materials. Tracing a supply chain is challenging. It takes patience, persistence, and trust. It takes time to build trust with locals who know the behind the scenes.
We partner with a third-generation family-run tannery located outside of Bangkok. Our tannery is passionate about the art of leather craftsmanship. The sourcing and the dye process are important to us and our tannery partner.
We've passionate about sourcing the highest-quality leather in a sustainable way. In fact, Brooke spent seven years trying to locate where our leather production. She learned that the hides are locally-sourced in Thailand, Australia, Japan and Vietnam.
The leather Sapahn selects are each beautiful and uniquely feature natural elements from the cow. Leather is a durable fabric—all our products are made to last a lifetime. And, hides are a bi-product of the meat industry. In this way, leather can be a way of mitigating waste. Plus, it's biodegradable.
It took years to perfect the recipe for beautiful colors and dye consistency. There are a lot of tanneries based in Thailand, but the quality varies significantly. Our nine years of experience guarantee expertly-dyed buttery-soft leather.
