Ethically sourced leather

Eco-Ethical Practices at JALALSJS

At JALALSJS, we are deeply committed to environmental responsibility. All the leather we use in our artisanal bags, shoes, and other leather products is exclusively sourced from farm-raised animals, which are primarily raised for food. This practice ensures that our leather is a byproduct of the meat industry, helping us avoid any unnecessary harm to animals for their skin. Our method not only prevents any impact on wildlife but also actively contributes to environmental conservation. By choosing JALALSJS, you’re supporting a brand that stands for ethical sourcing and profound respect for nature. We hope this clarification will address any concerns and highlight our dedication to sustainability and animal welfare.

Questions You Might Have

No, the animals used for our leather products are not killed for their hides. Our leather comes from animals that are raised primarily for the meat industry. This ensures that we make use of all parts of the animal, adhering to sustainable and ethical practices.

We do use leathers from exotic animals such as pythons and alligators. However, it’s important to note that these animals are farmed primarily for their meat in some countries. By using their hides for leather, we ensure that no part of the animal goes to waste, aligning with our commitment to sustainable practices.

Yes, the alligators we use for our leather products are raised on farms where they are primarily harvested for food. The leather is a by-product of this process. This approach is part of our commitment to ethical sourcing and minimizing waste.

Ceasing the use of natural leather could lead to significant environmental concerns, primarily due to the pollution caused by the disposal of animal hides from the meat industry. These hides, if not repurposed into leather, require disposal methods that can be environmentally harmful. Additionally, there might be an increase in the use of synthetic materials, which often have a higher environmental impact due to their production processes and non-biodegradability.

The primary reason for raising cattle, as well as other animals like snakes and alligators, is for meat consumption. The leather is a by-product of this industry. Therefore, reducing the use of leather would not directly lead to a significant decrease in the number of these animals raised, as the demand for meat is the primary driving factor.

We exclusively use leather sourced as a by-product from food industry animals, not from animals hunted specifically for their skins.
