One of the most important factors in the development and growth of NSL is to tackle and find ways to ensure our products can be sourced sustainably.

After working within the leather trade for over 100 years. We are committed to constantly assess our supply chain and work closely with all vendors to ensure they are meeting all required standards and also developing strategies to enhance and improve the sustainable sourcing of the raw materials and finished garments.

We are working with the leather working group who audit tanneries to meet their strict standards. Their objective is to develop and maintain a protocol that assesses the environmental compliance and performance capabilities of tanners and promotes sustainable and appropriate environmental business practices within the leather industry.

Leather has often unfairly received a bad reputation, but it is a recycled product with ecological value

7 million tonnes of bovine hides are left over the meat consumption industry, every year. These would be burnt or put in landfill utilising 1000 trucks per day, with a massive impact on the environment.

Substitute leather products also require huge resources of crude oil and chemicals which add to the environmental damage. So, utilising the available hides as leather contributes to a better environment when produced in the most sustainable way.
