Here at Homeward Hound, we are making a conscious effort to be more environmentally friendly.
We have always loved the aesthetic of leather, but as a vegetarian myself, felt uncomfortable using it as a medium in our products. And there began the search for something that suited our core values and beliefs, not only as a company, but as the person behind it.
There are of course, Faux and PU leather options which are more animal friendly, but can actually often be more detrimental as an environmental factor than real leather. This is where we found Pinatex- a ‘leather’ made from waste pineapple leaves. I knew this was our first step in becoming more environmentally friendly and this is where our collar and lead designs were born
