Fast fashion has taken the world by storm: fast, cheap and trendy – what more could the consumer want? But Fast Fashion also has a downside: environmental damage, appalling working conditions and products of poor quality. We at NEGOTIA Leather think it's time for a reset. It's time to focus on what really matters: quality and timeless design. We believe it is the responsibility of brands and designers to offer consumers more sustainable products. We believe that less is better: for you, for society and for our planet.
It's time for Slow Fashion, it's time for Buy Less But Better!
Buy Less but Better
With our Buy Less But Better way of thinking, we want to make Slow Fashion understandable and accessible to everyone. We want to empower consumers to make more environmentally friendly choices by investing in simple and stylish items that last for a long time. That's exactly why we create sustainable and stylish products: to help our customers consume less over time.
What does Slow Fashion mean to us?
Thoughtful designs are at the heart of our Slow Fashion philosophy. Before we make a new product, we ask ourselves whether it meets our slow fashion criteria.
Is it timeless? Functional? Durable? Multifunctional?
If a product answers no to any of these questions, we choose not to make it. We pride ourselves on making only useful products that our customers will enjoy for many years to come. As part of this philosophy, we don't believe in big sales or discounts. We do not want to pressure or encourage our customers to buy. We want you to take all the time to make the purchase that suits you, as only you can decide if something really fits your needs and lifestyle.
At NEGOTIA Leather we believe that the right design is the key to a sustainable product. We make products that are designed not to go out of style. Our timeless bags are made of natural materials and last a long time. We carefully select our materials for their environmental impact and their sustainability. All our bags are made to accompany you on your daily adventures for decades to come.
We only produce what we can sell. All our products are made in small batches, which allows us to respond immediately to demand and avoid waste and overproduction. This process also allows us to focus on perfecting even the smallest details of our designs and to ensure that every bag we make meets our strict standards for quality and durability.
We believe that fair trade practices are not only the right thing to do, but also enable us to offer better quality, more sustainable products. We have close relationships with the traditional workshops that produce our bags and we ensure that all our partners are treated fairly. For NEGOTIA Leather, an important part of Slow Fashion means that we value all people and make sure they work under fair and safe conditions.
Our quality standards
We only use sustainable, natural elements designed for functionality and style. For us , Buy Less but Better means that we design all our products to meet our strict standards for quality and longevity.
All our bags are carefully handcrafted from vegetable tanned leather. Due to this natural tanning process, they are free of all harmful chemicals and naturally hypoallergenic. These bags are lined with 100% natural cotton and finished with durable zippers, sturdy buckles and reinforced straps.
What does this mean for our customers?
We design durable, high-quality products so you can buy less but better. Buying better means thinking more about every purchase, deciding which companies reflect your values, and being an active and engaged consumer. We believe that our Slow Fashion approach will make your bag last longer and make you happier. You don't have to take our word for it! With our 100-day return policy and 1-year international warranty, you can decide for yourself.
We believe it is time for change. It's time to stop the dizzying merry-go-round of fast fashion trends and over consumption. At NEGOTIA Leather, we believe everyone has a part to play in shaping the future of our planet.
Even small choices can have a big impact. That's why we encourage you to join the slow fashion mindset and make the conscious choice to buy Less But Better.
