TEXTILE TUESDAY: District Leathers

Once each month, we invite a sustainable textile vendor to come present their materials and processes. Join us for March’s Textile Tuesday with District Leathers. District Leathers is a wholesale/retail company out of New York City stocking the most beautiful and sought after leathers from tanneries around the world.

District Leathers was founded in 2016 with the simple principle that all people should have access to the finest leathers from around the world. With a deep passion and generations of experience, the Bass family set out to collect what we believe to be the best, most innovative, and cost effective leathers. We’ve searched five continents, drew upon our knowledge and relationships, to create an ever developing collection of styles and articles for our customers to choose from.

Founder/CEO Alex Bass will be on hand featuring a few skins which are examples of different techniques used to tan/create leather in a more environmental conscious way including vegetable tanned leathers, chrome free leathers, and cruelty free leathers.
