The collection of HOLZRICHTER Berlin is created in a long lasting partnership with a manufactory in West Bengal, India. The natural tanning of the skins used as well as the sophisticated manufacturing of our products is done from one source. This gives us the opportunity to control a large part of the production chain ourselves.
The hides used for leather production are sourced from the regional food industry. In this way, the animal raw materials are fully utilized. It is a declared goal of our sustainability strategy to be able to guarantee the traceability of every single hide in the future. Only purely vegetable tanned leather is used. The entire tanning process is therefore carried out exclusively with the help of natural tanning agents.
As India is an emerging country with profound social challenges, we try to enforce high social and ecological standards together with our partner. We are committed to avoiding environmental pollution and to respectful working conditions. This includes the categorical exclusion of child labor, comprehensive occupational health and safety, paid vacation and paid sick days.
