Your product is handcrafted in Marrakech in Morocco. Every worker is paid fair wages, and an important part of Bouroug’s core is also to empower the artisanal community here. They also do skill acquisition programs, and make sure the heritage and craft is strengthened though every piece that is created.
Supporting Traditional Skills
This product is, as mentioned above, handcrafted in Morocco by skilled and committed artisans, using age-old techniques, which are passed down to them by their ancestors. This way of doing production supports craftsmanship that in many ways is about to be forgotten. Instead the know-how of how to create unique items in high quality is elevated and supported.
Reducing waste with Made to Order
By producing in small batches and on demand, Bougroug saves the environment from overproduction.
Low carbon footprint
By doing their production locally and sourcing their raw material from the same location in Morocco, Bougroug uses less energy and reduce their footprint both in regards to travel miles and in regards to the production process.
The small amount of chemicals used in the colouring and tanning process is treated in a controlled manner where use is kept to a minimum and treated in a controlled way, where no chemicals run out into the agricultural landscape, and everything is stored and disposed in a proper manner.
The raw material in this product is defined as Holistic Leather. This implies that the animal is not killed for its skin, but is instead a byproduct from food production.
