Eco leather with rugged look and feel
The leather of this bag has been tanned with 50% less chemicals than regular tanned leather. As a result the look and feel of this leather is slightly rough and distressed.
The leather is dyed with water based paints and finished with an organic wax, which is rubbed by hand into the skin and then ironed with a hot press. The end result is leather with a natural, lived-in look that will only become more beautiful will be in use and will get a suede-like look and feel.
Fair production according to Fair Trade standards
MoreThanHip’s eco-leather collection is produced in a local company in Ciudad Bolivar, a very poor suburb of Bogotá, Colombia, South America. This is one of the most dangerous neighborhoods of Bogota, where high unemployment, drugs and violence are very common. The studio employs more than 25 people who are well trained and can count on a steady job with a good salary up to local standards.
Carnaza, or semi-eco leather
The MoreThanHip ecoleather collection is made in Colombia made of ecologically responsible 'semi-eco leather’. This type of leather is locally known as 'waxed carnaza'. Carnaza refers to the applied layer of skin and waxed to the finish of the leather.
50% less chemicals
The semi-eco leather is made from the hides of cows who have spent their entire life outdoors. These skins are split into two layers. Carnaza is the skin's lower layer, which is much softer and smoother than the top layer. As a result, less than 50% of the chemicals are needed to tarnish the leather than in the regular tanning process, in order to create a strong and sustainable leather.
Water-based paint and organic wax
The carnaza leather is dyed with water-based dyes and finished with an organic wax that is rubbed manually in the skin and then ironed with a warm press. The wax therefore drains into the skin and forms the outer layer. The end result is leather with a natural, lived appearance that will only be more beautiful in use and will have a suede-like look and feel.
Fair production according to Fair Trade standards
The workshop where the MoreThanHip collection is made is located in Ciudad Bolivar. This is one of Bogota's most dangerous neighborhoods, where there is high unemployment and drugs and violence are the order of the day. This studio was founded in 2001 by Doña Rosa, after the leatherwork company, where she worked for 16 years, had gone bankrupt. Meanwhile, the studio already has more than 25 employees. Due to this success, Doña Rosa has become a role model for the women in her neighbourhood.
New opportunities in the slums
The studio offers people at the bottom of society a chance of a permanent job. They are trained and have a better existence with normal working hours, a local wage and health insurance.
