What leather do I use?
At LRLC, I want to be 100% transparent with my products.
I have spent many hours researching and sourcing leather fabrics to bring you the highest quality leather for longevity in my badass garments.
Yes, all of my jackets are made from 100% leather.
I have also made sure that the hides are sourced from an ethical leather merchant in Northampton, UK. GH Leathers only use skins that are a by-product of the meat industry, meaning the farming priority is food and the hide is secondary.
It was my main priority when sourcing leather hides for my products.
I have also visited their factory where they had a vast range of hides to choose from and was very impressed with the knowledge the staff had.

I do get asked a lot if I make vegan leather jackets:
For a start, I don’t design jackets out of plastic faux leather (cause that sucks for the environment.)
I am more than happy to discuss other alternatives when making a custom piece.
The best thing about this fabric is that it gets more badass with age the more you wear it, essentially when you're buying into one of my designs, you are investing in a unique piece for your wardrobe.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
