Not All Leather Are Created Equal

Learn about the materials we use in our bags.

Texture, luster, softness, weight… Each OLEADA bag is one of a kind on its own, sophisticatedly handcrafted with exquisite artistry. As we adopt sustainable practices every step of the way, the selection of materials is one of the most important parts of our process. Read on to learn more about the different leathers we use in our beloved styles.

100% Natural Recycled Leather

For those who want the softness of lambskin but not its frailty or high price – we have an answer for you. After extensive research, we discovered a rare type of Recycled Leather that recycles and comprises leather fiber from deadstock (unsold products) and leftover stock (fragmented leather wasted in mass production) into a new material that is great for handbags. 

Made from 100% natural materials, Recycled Leather makes the bag light as a feather and soft as a cloud, while providing much better resistance to water and scratches than lambskin. This type of Recycled Leather not only reduces waste, but it also costs 50% less water consumption to produce than traditional leather - gentle to the touch AND to the environment with a luxuriously smooth, soft, and supple texture.

100% Vegan Leather From Recycled Plastic Bottles

Isn’t it cool to carry a bag made of used plastic bottles? You can do that now with our Conscious Collection. Following Global Recycled Standard, we turn vegan leather materials synthesized from degraded recycled plastic bottles into premium multifunctional work bags. Vegan Leather offers the premier look and feel of real leather while recycling environmental waste. 

Our Captain Sleeve is each made of an equivalent of 32 recycled plastic bottles, saving your day and the planet at the same time! More style in vegan leather is coming in this summer.

100% Traceable By-product Leather 

We use Italian full-grain leather on our signature series for its luxurious, smooth, and flawless quality. Our tannery partner in Italy exclusively uses traceable leather derived as a by-product from the food industry while utilizing 100% green energy throughout the tanning process, which helps maximize the environmental efficiency of human activities and reduce carbon footprints in production.

Luster Pebble Leather is our most classic leather collection. Water-, stain-, and scratch-resistant, it gives off a beautiful natural sheen and is firmer to the touch. 

Matte Pebble Leather is considered the highest grade of leather that requires a more complicated production process allowing it to feel as soft as the skin with a more muted look.
