The environment, ecology and health are an integral part of the Simaca mission.
At Simaca, we source all of our hides and skins from reliable, sustainable tanneries from around the world. The large majority of our leathers are a direct bi-product of the meat industry. We don’t stock any rare or “exotic” animal leathers.
Sinus - the result of a partnership
The environment, ecology and health are an integral part of the Simaca mission. Meeting new industry challenges and consumer demands, Simaca established a partnership with the company Eduardo & Gaspar, creating Sinus to present new and greener solutions for the leather sector.
We are also very conscious of the chemicals used in the tanning of our leathers. Every one of our trusted and reputable suppliers strives to ensure that all environmental rules and regulations are met, in terms of both the chemicals and the processes used. All of our leathers comply with European standards. We are also happy to supply customers with product tests upon request.
