Brand Transparency

Who answered our brand transparency questions?

Margaux Lombard – CEO at Zoé de Huertas.

Fair Trade

FairtradeNeuMärz

How do you ensure "Fair Trade" manufacturing? If your manufacturing or the manufacturing company you work with is certified, please list these certifications.

All our handbags are designed and produced locally, in a small traditional family owned workshop in Rome, where skilled technicians work with pride and rhythm on every new production. We work closely with the team and visit the workshop every week. Fair working conditions and traditional craftsmanship are core values of our brand.

Social Justice

DEZEquality21

How do you ensure "Social Justice" with your internal and external corporate environment?

Transparency and equal opportunities are at the core of our brand. As a small company we value and empower all our collaborators.

Eco/Tech Material

DEZ Renewable energy21_22

Which "Eco/Tech Material" do you work with? What makes this material sustainable? And what makes it better compared to conventional material?

We source high quality free range leathers which come from selected European farms and are by-products of the food industry, which means no animal is killed for its skin. Some of our leathers are vegetable tanned and metal free, while others are sourced from LWG (Leather Working Group) certificate tanneries.

Local Production

LocalNeuMärz10_7

Where and why are your products manufactured "locally"?

The creative office is based in Rome. The production is entirely done locally in our small workshops run by local artisans.

Zero Waste

Zerowasteneumärz09

Which processes in your supply chain are "Zero "Waste"?

Our leathers are LWG certified, vegetable tanned and metal free. Which means they committed to limiting their impact on the environment. Vegetable-tanned leather does not contain any toxic substance harmful to man, such as such as azo-dyes, nickel, PCP or chrome VI, and is highly tolerable for those who suffer from metal related allergies. We also produce in small quantities, which allows us to limit waste and overproduction. Our packaging is also plastic free and our shipping boxes are made out of recycled paper.
