DEA leathers and environmental sustainability
The Tanning process is the cleaning, preparing and dying to create the leather. The standard process consumes significant amounts of water and some of the dyes can contain harmful chemicals.
Moving to a plant-based process known as vegetable tanning and drum dying, enables the use of natural materials to prepare leathers such as roots, barks, leaves, flowers, fruits and vegetables. This process leaves leathers in a more raw state and allows them to naturally change appearance over time. It significantly reduces both water consumption and contamination to marine and wildlife.
Recycled fibres and fabrics:
Every style made in 2022 will use 100% recycled polyester thread and our lining will be constructed of recycled fabrics that have been deemed as waste and discarded by the fashion industry.
Perma Core ECO 100 by A&E is an ethically manufactured, core spin, industrial sewing thread which features completed recycled continuous filament core and fully recycled polyester staple wrap.
The zipper tape is made from post consumer polyester waste, such as water and shampoo bottles. This process breaks down the plastic bottles by pulverisation and pelletization to turn the particles into recycled yarn and then into the zipper tape.
