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 Padfield Pebble Grain leather, from which the Sloane leather shoulder bag is crafted, is tanned in Somerset 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.
Why are more British brands not crafting at home in Britain from home-grown British hide?
Zippers and Metal fittings:
Padfield works with the highest quality metal zips available YKK Excella®. Sourced via YKK UK from YKK Europe.
We would love to work with British made metal zippers, however, after an extensive search we have not been able to identify a local maker. If you are a British maker of high quality metal zippers, please do get in touch.
Where possible we source our metal fittings in the UK. As the UK made fitting selection is very limited we source some fittings from Europe and Asia. If you are a UK maker of high quality brass metal fittings, please do get in touch as we would love to work with you.
