A LESSON IN HISTORY
A little info pack on Minor History!
Sustainable sources: All Minor history leather hides are ethically sourced from the USA as a byproduct of the food industry. Vegetable tanned leathers are drastically better for the environment than typically used chrome tanned pieces, and the NYC based brand has since made the switch wherever possible. All of the black leathers are vegetable tanned and happily, this leather is the top seller for us here at IB!
Responsible production partners: The small but growing brand works with small factories in China that, instead of resorting to the common industry practice of over-producing units to drive down costs, are committed to working in small production runs based on need and designed to waste as little material as possible. This is why pop seasonal colors occasionally sell out! Minor History conducts ethical audits on our factories to ensure they meet SEDEX SMETA 4-pillar requirements, which is an internationally known standard for adhering to environmental and business ethics. So, in short, investing in a well made leather bag, that can last, be repaired, and used for years, can now be affordable and more and more conscious.
Our first order is in, and their signature slim fanny packs and circle bags are flying out! Shop them with us in store (both locations) or online, and stay tuned as we plan on brining more pieces to the store for the fall season.
