ChromeFree leather is supple and lightweight. Sourced from farms in southern Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul), it undergoes an innovative tanning process during which no chromium, heavy metals or dangerous acids are used. The simplification of the tanning stages makes it possible to limit the use of chemicals and energy, as well as to reduce the use of water by approximately 40% and that of salt by 80%. After tanning, the water is recyclable.

Suede is the reverse side of a leather that is sanded down to give it a soft and supple appearance. It comes from farms in Rio Grande do Sul. It is tanned in Brazil according to REACH standards. The use of water is reasoned during the tanning process. This suede is then coated with two water-repellent oils to protect the sneakers against light rain. It is certified by the LWG (Leather Working Group) which promotes sustainable practices with a positive impact on the environment in tanneries.
