Dear Friends, 
 
As 2018 kicks off, we want to take this opportunity to let you know more about our mission for the new year and the direction we are taking as a company. Our goal is to always be transparent with our customers, and as our most loyal brand advocates we want you to be the first to know where we are headed.  
 
Earlier this year we launched Technik-Leather, a high-tech leather alternative that is 100% cruelty free, sustainable, and minimizes our environmental impact. We feel strongly that the industry needs a big change and we want to be a strong voice in this movement. The experience of bringing this one-of-a-kind material to market and seeing your amazing response to our direction has reinforced our confidence in our mission.  
 
This is why we are proud to announce that von Holzhausen will be transitioning to a 100% Technik-Leather collection in 2018, and we will be expanding with more styles and categories in this future-minded material. We will phase out our Classic Leather collection, and we would like to offer you the opportunity to purchase one of the remaining pieces before they are gone forever. Our Classic Leather is made with the most ethical approach using reclaimed hides and Italian tanning to create our timeless bags.

We are excited for an incredible 2018 that continues to support people, animals, and our environment through elevated designs that are both responsible and stylish.
 
Thank you for coming along on our mission to spread Ethical Style in the new year!
 
Happy 2018! 
 
Vicki von Holzhausen
