NARU STUDIOS will only ever use renewable, recyclable and biodegradable materials. All their bags are designed to last beyond a lifetime and it is their continuous mission to improve on any environmental and social impacts they are having. They strive to work with and for nature and its communities and not against them. They scrutinise each aspect of the design and production process – from the use of water, chemicals and energy to the reduction and elimination of water.
Organic Regenerative Leather
Sustainably sourced and produced in Italy and Germany, NARU use superior quality organic bovine leather that is a by-product of the meat and dairy industries. All the leather is 100% biodegradable and 100% traceable to the farms.
It is widely known that farming and ranching meat are significant drivers in deforestation and climate change. More recently there has been a movement of farmers who have used modern knowledge and age old expertise to counter these negative impacts. Regenerative and rotational farming allows livestock to play an essential role in the maintenance of soil health, and healthy soil draws down and stores carbon from the atmosphere. It is therefore NARU’s belief that farming can be the very solution to the problem it created over time.
Over the course of 2022, it is NARU STUDIOS’ goal to continuously increase the amount of regenerative leathers used in their products – mainly focussing on UK producers – with the aim of a purely regenerative future.
Sustainably Handmade in London
Part of NARU STUDIOS’ journey towards a more sustainable and considered future within the luxury industries is lowering their carbon footprint. Their founder has sourced one of the industry’s top ateliers, based in London, where each piece is lovingly handmade by skilled leather artisans.
NARU continuously strive towards a purely local supply chain, meaning that all their materials are sourced and produced with this in mind. They are passionate about supporting the British leather goods manufacturing industry, only ever producing small batches because NARU believe that high quality craftsmanship and creating beautiful products require skill and time.
For NARU, creating small batches is the true meaning of luxury and by offering a pre-order system, avoids over-production.
