In the past, if you wanted a leather-looking bag, you had two options. You could choose real leather (and deal with the sourcing issues that go with it), or you could pick a man-made alternative that is often lacking in the design department. After all, no matter how high-quality the vinyl — it still looked like vinyl. However, Ef+Facto has created an alternative that is turning heads. Now, you do not have to sacrifice style for a cruelty-free bag.
Wooden leather is a patented material that is made from wood. Sheets of wood are bonded to a fabric backing. Even better, an environmentally-friendly adhesive is used, so there are NO concerns there either. Then, the wood sheets are micro-laser etched, which makes the resulting material soft and pliable, just like leather.
All this is well and good, but beyond being cruelty-free, our wooden leather is fully sustainable. That is because for every tree used, 350 square meters of wooden leather are created, but we make sure more three are replanted than the number consumed.
The bags themselves are designed with the same style and aesthetic that a luxury leather bag would be, because why should style only come at the expense of an animal or the environment? Perfect for high end gifts, a beautiful bag is available to anyone, not just those who are willing to cave on their beliefs in a cruelty-free product.
For the SparcoHome & Lifestyle collection , we give each of our bags a unique number, a serial number of sorts. This number will help in identification. However, it is not the only unique feature. Because of how wooden leather is produced, no bag is the same as any other. Every single product is a real work of art.
