Real Leather Sandals may show real scars
Our leather sandals are primarily made from vegetable tanned kangaroo leather. As previously mentioned, we chose to use kangaroo leather as it is sustainable to the local environment as well as being one of the strongest leathers in the world. Furthermore, as the kangaroo population is culled annually, we believe we should use the leather that is a by-product of this strictly regulated harvest (previous blog post here with more information) By making this choice, we have accepted that some leathers will show scarring or other "defects" (with the current drought in Australia, the leather may be thinner) and whilst we endeavour to avoid including them in our sandals where possible, this sometimes is unavoidable. We believe that these naturally occurring scratches or scars add character to our products and highlight that beauty can be found in imperfections.
