The future should be clean and sustainable
Vakigrad selects its materials with care. We pursue ways towards sustainability through cleaner materials and designs for longevity. With the support of our customers, we can continue to push our suppliers to improve its environmental impact. This is important in our quest to create a future with less ecological damage.
VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER
Vakigrad’s leather is designed and tanned in Italy with vegetable extracts from bark, leaves and root vegetables in replacement for hazardous chemicals that cause health risks for humans and damage to the environment. This natural tanning process is called vegetable-tanning.
We use the finest top grain leather for all our designs, which ensures the longevity we want in a leather good and the luxurious look and feel for every hedonist.
The vegetable tanning process preserves the beautiful marks and veins of the hide that have occurred naturally. As such, any of our leather goods are unique making each piece one of a kind.
The leather will have a hard feel in the beginning, as it travels the world by your side, the leather will acquire a softer look and feel.
Our linen is made from a microfiber that holds the European Union certification EU-Ecolabel.
Our dustbags are made from organic cotton that holds the GOTS certification where chemicals used must meet strict criteria and a proper wastewater treatment. Our VAKIGRAD signature ribbon is certified with the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®. The certification is a comprehensive, testing and certification system for harmful substances in textile products at all stages of production. Test criteria are updated annually and go far beyond existing legal regulations.
Our box packaging is FSC certified. FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
The road towards cleaner materials is a continuing one. And as Vakigrad grows as a company, we will keep on encouraging suppliers to develop cleaner materials using fewer chemicals, water, and energy. We owe that to our customers who enjoy superior sustainable leather goods - and to the generations that will follow us.
