Sustainable materials

When we source materials, we look for materials that have properties that have little to no impact on the environment. In addition, we want the material to be strong enough so that our final product can last a long time. For example, we choose natural rubber and LWG Gold-certified Terracare leather. Terracare leather comes from Lederfabrik Heinen in Germany, they produce leather without PCP, benzidine and use 40% less water than regular tanneries.  

Our leathers

Did you know that all Loints of Holland shoes are made from the highest quality leather? This leather is produced by a highly energy efficient and sustainable tannery from Germany. We distinguish two types of leather: Full Grain and Nubuck. Both of these are made from the upper and strongest part of the hide. Full Grain leather is the original leather whose surface has not been processed. Nubuck is Full Grain leather whose surface has been sanded or ground. Within these two categories, we have several options for you at Loints of Holland. All of these options are detailed in the tables below.
