Upholstery Free of Hazardous Chemicals

Make the shift towards green chemistry

Unlike food and beverages, sofas, chairs and other furniture pieces do not come with an ingredient list. Maybe they should?

Hazardous or heavy metal chemicals, like Chromium, Dimethyl Fumarate (DMF) and Plasticiser Phthalates, are potentially harmful for workers, consumers and the environment. The industry is working hard to remove hazardous chemicals from the supply chain and to make the shift towards green chemistry. Are you?

It is important for brands, chemical suppliers and leather manufacturers to work together and reduce the industry’s chemical footprint.

Let us inform you about Zeology – the sustainable, chrome free, heavy metal free and aldehyde free leather tanning agent.
