Sourcing & Supplier Transparency Information
Priestleys choose to use leather for their products as we believe it to be one of the most sustainable materials out there, free from plastic, biodegradable, and a by-product of the meat industry when sourced responsibly. They ensure that they source the best possible full grain vegetable tanned leathers, tanned using natural tannins from vegetables and natural fibers.
They source from tanneries endorsed by working groups and consortiums that are continuing to raise the standards of leather production.
