    Interesting- I didn't know leather could be more bio-degradable. How is that possible?

      Hi Alessandra! A lot of my leather knowledge comes from our supplier that owns and operates a tannery in Kolkata, India. My understanding is that the life-span of leather has a lot to do with the way that it's tanned, and that when it's tanned without harmful chemicals and heavy metals, the time it takes to bio-degrade is decreased.
