In the UK, our hides are predominantly sourced from the UK and Ireland, traceable to slaughterhouse. We only acquire hides that come from abattoirs legislated by, and independently inspected by UK Government officials.
Ethiopia does not intensively farm and therefore hides, and skins are a by-product of small herds and flocks that are consumed locally for meat; therefore, we work with trusted traders for the supply of our raw material.
Pittards is party to UK and EU legislation on due diligence that protects against deforestation.
