What is remnant leather?
Remnant leather is the material left over once a leather hide has been cut or clicked at the factory or tannery. Especially in the fashion industry, manufacturers will frequently use only a small or specific part of a leather hide, then deem the rest of it to be scrap, even if it’s in pristine condition. This process sounds inefficient and wasteful because it is, especially when you consider so much remnant leather won’t be recycled, but put straight into landfill. We decided to do something about it.
