Saben uses top grain leather which is selected for it's quality and enduring nature. Being a natural fiber it is naturally biodegradable unlike PU & other plastic based alternatives, meaning it has better end of life potential.
Saben's leather is sourced from a tannery with a Gold standard certification, appointed by the LWG(Leather Working Group), an independent body which visits and audits factories globally, and inspects their environmental impacts. This leather is sourced local to our makers, but hides are from Australia, New Zealand, USA and Europe.
At Saben our goal is to be by your side, for many years to come. By choosing a durable, hardwearing product like leather, and by caring for your piece you will enjoy the longevity and sustainable nature of leather. We encourage and support repairing your bag to extend its life.
