Our mission is to inspire an elegant and responsible way of living.
Here are some of the ways we are working towards that goal.
Our leather comes from an esteemed Italian tannery in Tuscany. It is luxurious, hard wearing material made with all-natural and non-toxic plant-based dyes. The leather is responsibly sourced as it is a by-product from the food industry, meaning we create a beautiful new product from material that would otherwise go to waste.
Our new collection features products made with Piñatex - an innovative new textile made from pineapple leaf fibre - and we are in development of another exciting textile made with by products from the Italian fruit industry which we are excited to launch soon. We keep a keen eye on the latest sustainable textiles coming to market and hope to be seen as one of the leading brands championing the next generation of sustainable materials.
We work exclusively with Italian suppliers whom we have selected based on their craftsmanship and dedication to environmental values. Leather tanning is water intensive, however we have been impressed by the state of the art water filtration process used by our tannery, ensuring it recycles and purifies the water it uses. Their overall commitment to constantly improve their environmental impact is genuine and impressive.
Our tissue paper, cards and envelopes are all made from recycled paper and our dust bags are made with European grown OEKO TEX-certified cotton.
LUXTRA is a proud member of 1% For The Planet, an environmental foundation created by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard. As a member, we happily pledge to donate 1% of its total sales to an environmental cause. That commitment stands, whether we make a profit or not.
We also work with Dress For Success Greater London. Their fantastic team works with unemployed women from all walks of life to prepare them for job interviews.
DFS provide free professional clothing, interview coaching and ongoing support once their women re-join the workplace. We donate our handbags to give women a boost come interview time.
LUXTRA constantly seeks to improve its environmental and social impact whilst creating items of beauty and exceptional quality. We are proud of our collection and hope that you enjoy them.
