Sustainable Moore & Giles Leather Tanned With Fallen Olive Leaves


For years, Moore & Giles has searched to create a leather offering for designers that is truly sustainable—from the animal to the tanning process—and now with Olive Green Leather, the option exists. Completely biodegradable and 100 percent natural, the wet-green® tanning extract used to produce our Olive Green leather uses fallen or pruned olive leaves generated during harvest. Today, 15 million tons of olives are harvested each year in Europe alone. Until now, the leaves of the olive tree have been burned after the harvest on the plantations. Now, this revolutionary process is enabling these leaves to be turned into a 100-percent sustainable tanning agent for the production of the finest leathers and for the protection of health and the environment.
