The creation of a Padfield can be traced from British farm, to British tannery, to British workshop.
Quality over Quantity
Padfield crafts in response to demand, this is to ensure we only ever make what is needed. Our design process favours sophisticated styles in timeless colours, to ensure that every Padfield is as relevant tomorrow as it is today
We believe that sustainability has to be both social and environmental. It is the
picture as a whole that has to be considered: How, Where, Who.
How: Padfield crafts responsibly to meet demand. We utilise hides that are a byproduct of British farming that might otherwise go to waste. Padfield leather is tanned in Britain in modernised tanneries to mitigate environmental impact.
Where:. The UK is one of only four countries with standard A for farm animal welfare, alongside Austria, Switzerland and New Zealand. Knowing the start of the journey of a Padfield (the where), the origin of the hide we utilise, is just as important to us as the finished product.
Who: Artisans crafting Padfield accessoriesdo so in British workshops earning fair UK wages. All Padfield accessories are made by skilled leather artisans well over the UK's legal working age of 16.
