We now offer two types back patches.
The original leather patch and our new vegan patch.
To give people the option and to look for a lower-impact alternative.
When the new patch arrived at the factory, we thought there must have been a mistake.
These surely were made from leather? The look and feel of them, they couldn’t be mostly plant-based could they?
Yup. They were. Landes, the same company who provide us with our leather patches had succeeded in creating a durable vegan patch from 60-80% cellulose and 20-40% latex.
We know that working with them means innovation and quality.
