Meet Lena, who cuts all the leather for every single pair of clogs. Lena has been working at the Factory for 8 years and she has become a real expert in leather and cutting. She knows exactly how to cut the most efficient and how to cut for using as much as possible from every hide of leather. Sustainability always-in mind and she doesn’t like to scrap leather.
What do you need to think about when cutting the leather?
It’s important to make sure that you cut from the same cowhide for the same pair of clogs, so they’ll look the same. For example while cutting a pair of Tokyo in the nude vegetable leather it is important to cut two pieces from the same hide so the color will look the same. Nude leather could vary a lot from the same cowhide.
