As champions of slow fashion, we firmly believe sustainable fashion starts with the very first step - the conscious sourcing of materials. Besides superb craftsmanship, each OLEADA bag is proudly brought to life with innovative recycled leather, reducing and reusing waste for the better of our planet. Discover the recycled leather types we use in our bags.
Cattle are the No. 1 agricultural source of greenhouse gases worldwide. In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, we carefully selected and partnered with a tannery in Italy that exclusively uses by-product leather recycled from the food industry. The beautiful genuine leather on your bag might be from the same source as the food on your plate - our Re-Plate Leather is proudly made of this traceable by-product leather that repurposes waste that helps to minimize the environmental impact of our activities.

Ununique to the food industry, waste is often found in fashion production as well. After extensive research, we discovered a rare type of recycled material that is mainly made of leather scraps of over-produced products and leftover fragmented materials in mass production. Containing more than 65% natural leather content, Re-Scrap Leather reutilizes waste and costs 50% less water consumption to produce than traditional leather.
Wouldn't it be cool to carry a bag made of used plastic bottles? Discarded plastic waste is given another life in our Re-Plastic Leather, which strictly follows Global Recycled Standards. This sustainable vegan leather not only uses plastic bottles as the main material but also recycled clothes as fillers.
