Ms. Bay is dedicated to ecological production. They use vegetable-tanned traditional leather, along with fish leather that is created from discarded materials from the fishing industry. At this time, technology prevents fish leather from being vegetable tanned, however the tanning and dying processes for fish leather are far less aggressive and toxic than those used for regular mammal leathers. Furthermore, their tannery partners reduce their energy consumption by using geothermic and hydropower energy sources.
Ms. Bay is a transparent company with a small supply chain. They source the fish skins directly from sustainable fisheries in Northern Europe, and produce in SA8000 certified factories in India- ensuring high standards of worker welfare.
