Fabulous bags and wallets made from Recycled leather
Did you know that more than 500.000 tonnes of leather are estimated to be wasted every year. As a result 60% of leather that is produced isn’t used and more often than not ends up in landfills, creating a huge environmental problem with leftover leather.
Soruka who are designers from Barcelona, have a mission to try and resolve this environmental problem, creating unique hand crafted bags and purses in a sustainable way. Every piece made is completely unique and made with the best quality recycled leather available.
Soruka’s aim is to be a zero waste company and so they make every attempt to use every scrap of material. With great effort artisans craftsmen select the cutting and the right colors in order to transform waste into a unique piece of art.
Their bags are manufactured in India. Soruka work closely with small, independent artisans to help grow their business and production capabilities. The partnership with them is the best method of job creation in low income environments and also a way to preserve generational craftsmanship.
Each of Soruka’s artisans are trained adults over 18, who receive beyond fair trade wages.
At The Dotty House we love to support small ethical businesses and absolutely love the values that Soruka as a business have. We have a great selection of their bags, purses and wallets all available on our website and in our shop in Gateshead.
