Suede Story

Twin is green with lust for Veja’s new Gisèle bag. The French ecological brand, known for their fair-trade sneakers, have designed a range of suede bags that have style and ethical substance. While the modern tanning industry uses chromium or another heavy metal that is bad for the environment, Veja has used vegetable-tanned suede, which is dyed using natural pigments. The leather used is tanned with acacia extract, so no fluocarbons are applied. Helping the environment has never looked and felt so good.

The Gisèle is available from the Design Museum Shop and Darkroom in London.
