RESPECT FOR ANIMALS
At Canussa we are committed to the use of fabrics that don’t originate from animals. we’re delighted to say we’ve been awarded the coveted ‘PETA Approved’ designation.
Vegan Alternative to Leather
The fabric used for the exterior of our accessories is waterproof and has the appearance of 100% natural leather in a microfiber that is washable, light, ecological and highly resistant, even against chemical agents.
The STANDARD Oeko-Tex 100 is an independent testing and certification system that certifies that the fabric we use has been tested and meets the required criteria to be considered an ecological fabric free of toxic substances, toxic to health.
THE DURABLE AND RECYCLED VEGAN ALTERNATIVE TO LEATHER
We believe in vegan, and circular fashion, so we are working on getting all materials used in our accessories highly resistant and of the highest quality; at the same time as being recycled without having to use any animal fabric/resources.
We have managed to obtain the use, as of April 2020, of an external fabric that, on top of being resistant and having the same appearance as leather, is recycled: 70% PES recycled , 20% corn polymer and 10% PU.
All our accessories are made ethically in Spain.
Vegan fashion is generally defined as the manufacture of clothing and accessories produced without animal origins. That is to say, during the manufacturing process no animal is touched
Even if the term “vegan leather” is not completely accurate, it is nevertheless a term used to refer to a material that ‘looks like’ leather but does not come from animals. At Canussa we prefer to refer to a vegan alternative to leather. To us the best option available at the moment is to use high resistant microfiber Oeko-Tex certified. We are working on offering the option of a recycled fabric that looks like leather.
For the lining we use SEAQUAL® YARN which is is a 100% recycled material with full traceability (DNA tracer inside). It’s a high-quality, recycled polyester yarn made from recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and plastic captured from the sea. That’s why it contributes to preserving natural resources and reducing the waste in the planet’s water. Our objective is to work toward a circular future using 100% recycled fabrics
At Canussa, we try to reduce as much as we can our carbon footprint, so we do our best to select local suppliers and to manufacture ethically in Spain. Additionally, per each Canussa, in collaboration with ‘One Three Planted’, we plant one tree
