Proudly slow fashion
When I think about slow fashion, I think about my grandmother who worked as a seamstress. She would spend long hours hunched over the sewing machine, creating items that only years of practice and proficiency in her craft could produce. Witnessing the time and work that went into each garment gave me an appreciation for the hours, materials and people behind the clothes and accessories we wear. This is why we are proudly a slow fashion business. Neri Karra bags and accessories are not made for trends and seasons, but as quality pieces designed to last a lifetime, respecting the resources used in their creation and the people who created them. We are so confident in the quality of our leather goods that we offer free lifetime repairs of any Neri Karra purchase whether you brought from us two years or two decades ago. We also ensure the respect and on-going support of our artisans without whom we wouldn’t have the quality product we have today.
RESPECT FOR OUR MATERIALS
We are conscious and deliberate in our sourcing and manufacturing processes, seeking quality materials with minimal impact to the environment, whilst creating items built to last and as such not depleting resources. This is why we use beautiful leather of the highest grade for each and every Neri Karra bag and accessory. All of our hides are fully traceable, from where the animal was reared, to how it was treated in life. We only use leather that is a by-product of the food industry and our suppliers hold gold accreditation for the sourcing of our leather. We believe that this respect for our materials is evident in the quality of our creations, which are made to be cherished for a lifetime.
REPAIR, REUSE, RECYCLE
As well as offering free lifetime repairs of any Neri Karra purchase, we act resourcefully, using off-cuts where we can to ensure little goes to waste. We participate in government-run initiatives encouraging businesses to recycle and repurpose waste materials, and we are always seeking new ways to reduce our business’s impact on the environment.
A POSITIVE LUXURY BRAND
We are proud to be officially recognised as a Positive Luxury Brand; a brand that demonstrates a commitment to having a positive impact on the environment and society. The associated butterfly mark indicates that we go beyond industry standards and make efforts to seek new and innovative ways to reduce our impact on the environment as well as contributing to our communities for the better. We do this as we believe that respect for the environment and our communities goes hand in hand with good business.
