no waste

paper republic is working to keep production waste as low as possible. In recent years, we have developed an efficient system to minimise or even avoid leather waste altogether. We punch the individual leather hides in the most resource-saving way possible, using up as much leather as we can. We use larger, imperfect leather scraps for prototypes of upcoming products, and produce keyrings, bag tags and bookmarks as gifts to customers out of smaller leftover leather pieces.

We develop small products (e.g., wallet, pen loop), parts of which can be made from leftover leather pieces. The smallest pieces are collected and sold at a reasonable price to customers who want to experiment or improve their leather crafting skills.
