What advantages does leather offer compared to other materials?
Leather is a high-quality natural product that fits in with the trend toward natural materials. Each piece of leather is unique as no animal hide is the same as another. Premium exclusive leather is skin-friendly and easy to clean since dust and other contamination cannot permeate the surface material. The natural breathability of the hide is preserved in leather as an essential quality characteristic.

From where does Wollsdorf source its raw materials?
The starting point for all our activities is a purely natural product: the hides of cattle. With regard to the selection of our suppliers, we are especially mindful of ecological procurement criteria and species-appropriate animal husbandry. It must be noted that Wollsdorf only procures hides from healthy and uninjured animals since only these hides can be processed into qualitatively valuable leather.
Are animals butchered for leather production?
Not a single animal is killed in order to produce our leather. Hides used by Wollsdorf are ultimately by-products of the meat and milk industry from which we produce sustainable and valuable products. Thus, leather manufacturing is a good example of upcycling as we use raw materials that would otherwise be discarded.
Does Wollsdorf’s production process burden the environment?
At Wollsdorf, we always act responsibly in regard to our environment. For this reason, we have made it our mission to produce our goods with minimal environmental pollution. Responsible environmental conduct and conservation of our valuable resources are especially important for the following generations. We ensure compliance with our standards on a daily basis as we are also the holder of numerous environmental certificates.
