OUR MISSION - We find ourselves in the unique position to honor what we have borrowed from nature and create beautiful handbags with the utmost respect for our planet and everything on it. In the process we are engaging our global communities to inspire and understand our common opportunity to make the world a better place through beauty and responsible luxury.
RAW MATERIAL SELECTION CRITERIA - Piper & Skye has developed a checklist for use in its careful selection of materials (exotic skins and leathers) used for production of its luxurious handbags. The following are the items we require in order to proceed with a certain raw material.
The species has to be in over-population in its natural habitat.
The species has to be used as a food source somewhere in the world.
The skins and leathers would be considered a waste product (headed for a landfill) unless passed-on to designers and artisans who create beautiful handbags and accessories with them.
Management of the species is overseen by a governing body (CITES, Fish and Wildlife Licensing, etc.) which seeks to ensure the healthy and thriving ecosystem in which the species lives.
There is no undue suffering in any form during the process of culling, fishing, or otherwise.
* This list will be continuously edited and modified, as needed.
ANIMAL WELFARE - Piper & Skye adheres to the animal welfare principles established by the non-profit organization “Business for Social Responsibility” (BSR Principles). Any Supplier providing us with animal materials shall also adhere to such principles.
In addition, Piper & Skye refers to the Terrestrial Animal Health Code published by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) for animal welfare standards at an international level. We expect our suppliers to fully comply with these standards and global animal laws.
