Even some plant leathers still use plastic-based coatings to help give it structure and increase its durability. Try to look for ones that use natural binders instead.

Similarly, even most genuine leather is coated in synthetic resins to give it water-resistance. To find a truly sustainable alternative, dig deep to find producers who use natural resins or waxes instead, or who leave the leather unprotected altogether. They are few and far between!

When possible, choose vegetable tanned leather instead of chrome-tanned leather. Vegetable tanned leather doesnโ€™t use the toxic chemicals we normally associate with leather tanning, and many sustainable leather producers also use natural dyes to color the leather, rather than chemical dyes. Make sure to check the label though, as some leathers sold as veg tan are actually a combination of chrome and veg tanning.
