#HONESTSKIN — LEIT & HELD FOR LEATHER GOODS WITH TIMELESS DESIGNS AND TRACEABLE ORIGINS

“Can you still wear leather with a clear conscience?” For leather-goods label Leit & Held the answer is yes. Founded in 2018 by trio Pia, Dana and Nina, the marque seeks greater transparency in the leather industry with its motto of “more sustainable, more conscious and more beautiful”. The minimalist and timeless leather handbags, backpacks and purses are robust, long-term companions, and their manufacture and its supply chains are totally transparent: the leather is sourced from an organic farm in southern Germany, with hides collected and sorted at the Fairfleisch abattoir. Tanning then takes place at the Renz leather factory, followed by finishing at H.F.Anton. At the Leit & Held studio in Berlin, each item is lovingly packed to order with a personal greeting. In the end, buying leather is a personal choice, but these products show just how transparent and accountable the industry can really be. (Text: Annika Hillig / Photos: Jonas Weibel)
