Legend Bags & Belts is a leather goods company. We do our best to make the production process of our products as fair and safe as possible with the least possible impact on the environment. We strive to ensure that our products are made with respect for people, the environment and the animals.

Tanning process

Tanning process When we talk about the tanning process, it is about the process of turning the skin of an animal into a useful piece of leather for creating leather goods. What happens during this process is that the proteins are made unresolvable, this prevents decomposition. All of our belts are tanned in LWG-certified tanneries. The abbreviation LWG stands for, Leather Working Group. Every tannery is audited on their production process with the aim of improving environmental processes, performance and working conditions. Some bags in our collection are from vegetable tanned leather. This means that no chemicals are used in the tanning process. In the future we wish to produce completely without chemicals. Together with our suppliers we strive to live up to the LWG standards.

Concerning the buckles, our belts are completely nickel free. Nickel is a type of metal that is extracted from nickel ores. Some people are allergic to nickel. Nickel free buckles ensure no stains on your skin, clothes, no discoloration and no rash.

Production process

At Legend we only use leather from cowhides. Our leather comes from Spain, Italy and India. Our supplier makes sure the leather arrives at our in-house warehouse in the Netherlands. Here we check the color, damage and quality of the leather. After this check, the buckles and the leather are sent to our own factory in Morocco. Here our belts are made by hand. Our bags are purchased and produced in India.

Animal skins and sustainability

Leather products are sustainable. This may sound strange, but we are happy to give you a little more insight into our industry. The fact that leather is seen as a sustainable article stems from the fact that leather is a waste product. At Legend Bags & Belts, we do not use skin from exotic or endangered animals. In addition, we also do not use fur. Our animal skins come from the waste of the meat industry, and these skins are also biodegradable. Taken together with the fact of the lifespan of a leather product is way longer than, for example, a PU article (Poly Urethane), made from oil and plastic. The environmental impact of replacing a fake leather item multiple times is many times more damaging than one leather item. Animals are not slaughtered for the purpose of producing leather articles. Animals are slaughtered for the meat industry. Instead of burning the leather or putting it on landfills, with a major negative impact on the environment, it is reused to make leather.

Packaging

Our shipping boxes are made from recycled corrugated cardboard, with a black cover paper. One goal is to switch to FCS shipping boxes in the future. The wood from which the shipping boxes are made, come from responsibly managed forests. We aim to implement even more sustainable efforts in to our business processes in the future. We strive to further reduce our environmental footprint.
