Our design philosophy at Yana Dee Ethical Apparel is based on minimizing waste, and maximizing the materials we have to create a beautiful, highly functional item. All of our leather accessories are made from re-purposing usable scrap materials from other makers. We acknowledge that the creation of leather has a lot of energy input, and honor that process by using the scraps we can find, as fully as we can.
Maybe now you can see why we dare to call these "ethical" leather accessories. Whether the piece measures a couple of square feet or a couple of inches, we are proud to feature the character of this prime material.
