Truly sustainable alternative

Zeology was developed as a sustainable alternative to existing tanning agents. It is chrome-free, heavy metal-free and aldehyde-free. Therefore, it offers significant environmental benefits: less pollution, less discharge of chemicals in waste and waste water, no use of chromium or glutardialdehyde (GDA), and improved biodegradability of tanned material. Using Zeology-tanned leather for shoes and leather goods offers consumers something unique: a sustainable option, without compromising on aesthetics and leather performance.

The new standard

What makes Zeology unique, compared to both traditional tanning agents and other existing sustainable alternatives, is that it delivers both sustainability benefits and superior leather performance. Zeology-tanned leather, Zeo White, is unsurpassed in characteristics such as grain tightness, physical leather properties, lightfastness and heat-resistance. In addition, its bright white color, enables white leather, and lighter and brighter colors than ever possible before. All of this gives shoes and leather goods designers more freedom to create the most exciting sustainable premium leather pieces, without compromising on leather quality and appearance.

Now you see why Zeology-tanned leather (Zeo White) is the new standard in sustainable leather for shoes and leather goods.
