Leather, a sustainable material

Leather is often considered a luxurious and durable material, but it is also an environmentally sustainable option for a variety of reasons.
First and foremost, leather is a natural material that comes from the hides of animals, and it is a byproduct of the meat industry. This means that leather production helps to reduce waste by making use of parts of the animal that might otherwise go to waste.

Additionally, leather has a long lifespan, which makes it a sustainable choice for clothing, footwear, and other goods. With proper care, leather products can last for decades, and they often improve with age as the material develops a unique patina.
Leather also has a lower carbon footprint than synthetic materials. While synthetic materials require significant amounts of energy to produce, leather production relies more on traditional methods that use less energy and generate fewer greenhouse gases. Additionally, leather can be recycled or repurposed into new products, further reducing its environmental impact.
Overall, leather is a sustainable material that offers durability, longevity, and style while also helping to reduce waste and carbon emissions and this is why Lar da Nai cushions are made with leather.
At Lar da Nai, we understand that every decision we make has an impact on the environment. That's why we've made it a priority to consider the environmental impact of our products, when setting up the company structure we were looking for a long-lasting and eco-friendly option. 
We source our leather from responsible and sustainable tannery who adhere to strict environmental and ethical standards. Our tannery is committed to reducing their carbon footprint, conserving water, and protecting animal welfare.
In addition, we use eco-friendly and natural tanning methods that avoid the use of harmful chemicals, reducing water consumption and using vegetable-based dyes and other natural ingredients to create the hides, which is better for the environment and for workers who handle the materials.
This not only minimises the environmental impact of our leather production but also ensures that our cushions are safe and healthy for our customers to use.
