At Coloniaire, respecting and preserving the environment for future generations is of utmost importance. We believe that style and affordability does not have to come at the cost of a social conscience. Coloniaire’s sustainability initiative is a holistic strategy that tackles the challenges of sustainable development systematically with clearly defined targets in the following areas:
- Streamlining processes to reduce energy and water consumption, making more efficient use of chemicals and finding new ways of utilising by-products.
- Improving leather properties during and after use: longer service life, minimising waste and employing good recycling practices.
- Developing new products and chemical systems that utilise renewable raw materials and eliminate all substances with damaging toxic properties.
- The leather we use is a by-product of the food industry and is upcycled into quality products of long-term value. We strictly adhere to the standards of REACH / RSL and ensure that our products are free from AZO, PCP, Formaldehyde, Lead, Cadmium and all other prohibited amines. Our focus for the new range is to address chromium allergy by producing chrome 6-free garments. In addition, our eco-sustainable production processes reduce the consumption of electricity, water, gas, chemicals and CO2 emissions.
