Sustainability through transparency

Top quality leather begins with the animals and their environment. We source our raw material exclusively from the Alpine regions, where responsible behaviour towards both livestock and the countryside is an absolute priority. During the tanning process wecombine traditional craftmanship techniques and strict controls to produce finished leathers of the highest quality, aesthetically pleasing and free of any harmful substances.

Weinheimer Leder GmbH relies on the OEKO-TEX® test label to guarantee that the leather is harmless and to continuously monitor it. The leathers of Weinheimer Leder have been certified according to the LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX® since 2020.

The leathers from Weinheimer Leder are produced exclusively in the STeP by OEKO-TEX® certified tannery Kegar. The goal of STeP is to implement environmentally friendly production processes in the long term, to improve health and safety and to promote socially responsible working conditions at production sites.

Weinheimer Leder stands for clean, ecological and ethical leathers, produced according to European standards. Thanks to the independent OEKO-Tex test label, most of our leathers are tested according to the OEKO-Tex Leather standard.

Tracing

In order to keep track of our skins and their history at all times, each of our leather skins has its own barcode. This means that we can not only determine the origin of the leather fur exacly, but also the type of manufacture and all item-specific information. The value chain can be traced more precisely using the barcode and the barcode number.
