We’re on the journey
To us, sustainability is a series of ongoing decisions and steps forward. Our current focus is choosing the most sustainable option wherever we can – whether that be with genuine leather products that follow a closed-loop cycle, or cruelty-free materials that take minimal energy to create. We stand behind slow fashion and for products that last a lifetime, while supporting the fair treatment and local communities of our independent artisan partners.
Made slow to last a lifetime
We’re committed to sourcing leather and leather alternatives made using organic and natural practices with the highest quality and lowest impact.
The difference of MANDRN leather
The leather used in our bags and accessories has been carefully and responsibly sourced since day one. We stand behind the practices we follow – together with our suppliers – to make sure that top-quality, sustainably-sourced leather continues to be the heartbeat of our production.
Here's how we do things differently.
Creating to continue on. We don’t harm animals to make our bags, instead repurposing leather that would otherwise end up in landfills.
Handmade to last. We design and craft with intention to produce quality leather pieces that are both timeless and seasonless.
Aging like a fine wine. With the proper leather care, our bags take on that classic-leather-with-a-touch-of-vintage look over time.
Our sourcing promise
We’re lifelong learners, which means we’ll always be looking for innovative ways to use the most responsible materials and practices. We’ll also stay conscious of minimizing our waste, and continue re-using scraps from our various collections (like the fanny pack scraps used to make our keychains and wallets) on the never-ending journey towards higher-integrity material.
Carbon Neutral Shipping
In the steps towards a more sustainable MANDRN, we’ve made all our shipments 100% carbon neutral. With the help of our shipping partner, Route, this means that we look at the emissions created from each shipment, then purchase carbon credits needed to offset the same amount (in this case, through planting trees in Brazil). It’s a small step, but one that we’re excited to keep building on as we grow.
Travel lightly. Move freely. Live intentionally.
