Compostable & biodegradable

Imagine a beautiful bag from responsibly sourced leather, that is manufactured in a way that it could compost, biodegrade and return to nature. That is what Zeology Leather is all about.

Your used Zeology Leather bag or shoes can provide the soil with nutrients once the material has disintegrated into compost. Zeology Leather gives a proper compost within 45 days under industrial composting. It is also found to actually nourish the soil, delivering stronger plant growth than industrial compost.
