Heyoka X Ian Stevens One-off handmade card holder: CH1
One-off handmade card holder by leather smith Ian Stevens. Design by Heyoka. Made from up-cycled eco-friendly selvedge denim off-cuts and natural vegetable tanned bassan leather.
Denim manufacturer Saitex reduces the environmental impact of their production as much as possible. Aside from using waste to make bricks and filtering their waste water, they teamed with Damian Quinn & William Donoghue to start sister company Saikutsu with a view to use any dead stock in the footwear and accessory industry.
Natural vegetable tanned Leather is one of the oldest methods of making leather and has been used for thousands of years. It uses natural tannins found in barks, wood and other parts of plants to convert animal skin into leather. This is the most environmentally friendly way to tan leather and the process is very lengthy, therefore expensive - but widely recognised as the most desirable for high quality products.
