Information about Brazilian cowhides
All of our cowhides are tanned in Brazil by the best tanneries in the world. We work with tanneries in southern Brazil which purchase their cowhides from local abattoirs. The cows themselves come from farms in southern Brazil which follow well documented health practices and animal welfare practices.
None of our cowhides originate from illegal grazing operations in the Brazilian rain forest region.
The people that own and work in the tanneries in Brazil are very proud of the work they do, they also take their jobs very seriously, and they follow very strict guidelines and I find it unfortunate that these professional business's get immediately labelled with destroying the rain forest.
We know that our customers appreciate the quality of our gorgeous cowhides, and we will continue to support these very talented and passionate tanneries.
