Padfield leather is tanned in England, UK.
At Padfield we believe that to be a truly British brand we must craft locally from British materials whenever possible. The leather, from which the Padfield Wash Bag was crafted, is tanned in England.
The hides originate from British and Irish beef and dairy farming. The UK is ranked A, sharing the highest rank status with Austria, Switzerland, and New Zealand as one of the top countries in the world for animal welfare and environmental standards.
In deciding to work with a by-product of British farming, Padfield is choosing to utilise a hide that would either go to waste or be exported abroad. Our research suggests that most hide from British beef and dairy farming is exported abroad, which is disappointing considering how many British brands retail leather accessories.
