Leather is not made under fair trade principals. In essence, it cannot be. Indeed, cattle breeding needs extended fields and the relevant financial inputs.
Leather producers are not marginalized. Veja works with organic cotton and wild rubber producers, their situation is not comparable to the leather producers.
It is difficult to work directly with leather producers and it is quite impossible to be sure of the leather’s origin or the way cattle have been treated.
However we know that the cattle do not come from the Amazon where cattle breeding is a main factor in deforestation.
Our ultimate objective is to be knowledgeable and in control of our whole leather supplier chain, from the cows nurturing and living conditions to the tanning and dying process of the leather.
