Our sustainable, plant-based leathers are a breakthrough in climate science. It all begins in our Design Lab, where we transform a piece of bamboo or a discarded plastic water bottle into a world of possibilities.

OUR MISSION
 

We’re von Holzhausen, a team of material innovators on a mission to replace animal leather with a scientific, optimistic approach. Why?

Leather tanning destroys land and waterways plus pollutes the air with toxic chemicals, including some known carcinogens.*

Astonishing as it sounds, livestock production causes as much greenhouse gas emissions than planes, trains and cars combined.+

On the bright side, we can lighten our carbon footprint by using smart, safe materials that make innovative use of existing resources.

The Large Shopper

Beautiful Bag

This bag really exceeded my expectations. The leather is soft and supple and I have received many compliments on the bag. I can fit my laptop, iPad and a make up kit comfortably and because the material is light weight it is not heavy.

The Market Tote

In love with this bag!

I am so happy to see this incredible collection of vegan bags available. I have been using my Market Tote every day since I got it and leaving my Birkin at home. I love the feel of the vegan leather and the color combination is so elegant.

The Zipper Crossbody

Love my new purse!

It is the perfect size! It fits my big wallet, phone and a few other items. I love it. I haven't worn leather for 20 years and it's hard to find a product that still looks nice and professional. The vegan leather is beautiful, I would highly recommend

Go-to bag as a new mom

The Micro Bag

My daily little favorite!

This little bag has become my absolute favourite. It has the perfect size to take it with me on my daily dog walks or other activities where I don't want to carry or bring a bigger bag to simply store my mobile or the house keys.
