Sustainability and cruelty free – these are just some of the buzz words in fashion, derived from an increased number of consumers looking to make ethical choices.
From vegan leather to carefully sourced material, there is a lot more to think about when it comes to investing in your new season wardrobe, and we found a label that should definitely be on your radar.
Hailing from the heart of Italy, sophisticated accessory label Alberto Sartori was born of the vision of Creative Director, Barbara Cortelazzi, who thoroughly researches her suppliers and only offers made to order handbags in an aim to avoid destroying any out of season pieces – something that Burberry stopped doing after it was revealed that the British brand disposed of unsold clothes, accessories and perfume worth millions.
Using only the finest selection of Italian eco-friendly calfskin and crocodile leather, each bag is created with meticulous craftsmanship techniques. With the leather sourced from sustainable Italian tanneries, in Tuscany and Veneto.
“The tanning procedures have zero impact on the environment and made with alternatives to traditional raw materials, such as through the recycling of vegetable fibres, thereby offering animal – free leathers,” said Cortelazzi.
The very first Alberto Sartori collection will premiere this coming Fall and can be purchased through the brand’s website where you can design your very own handbag.
