Discover all the benefits

Improved biodegradability

Zeology was developed as a sustainable alternative to existing tanning agents. It is chrome-free, heavy metal-free and aldehyde-free. Therefore, the main benefit is for the environment: 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 your premium leather goods, from bags to shoes to clothes, offers your consumer the responsible leather fashion they are looking for.

The future of sustainable fashion is extra bright

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 were ever possible before. All of this gives you as a fashion designer or brand more freedom to create the most exciting sustainable premium leather pieces, without compromising on leather quality and appearance. That is why Zeology-tanned leather (Zeo White) is the new standard in sustainable leather for fashion. Learn all about Zeology, Zeo White and zeolite at the University of Zeology.
