Deadwood leather products are made from rescued deadstock skins, repurposed vintage clothing and upcycled post-production waste. That means for some of their production they actually chop up old leather garments that have reached their expiration date in terms of style and turn them into new beautiful jackets and accessories with a vintage soul. This not only gives the product a soft worn-in feel but also makes it a far more sustainable alternative to the average newly produced leather garment.
They may also use offcuts from the garment industry or rejected skins from the tanneries. An increased number of cut-lines in each garment enable them to use what otherwise would have gone to waste. And it adds character!
Deadwood’s approach is far from fast fashion and anxious design. They will never be about reinventing fashion. Instead, Deadwood sets out to reinvent how we think about fashion. They are about rebooting iconic styles, gently updating them with a modern touch and inspiring customers to buy and wear consciously. Their collections are updated bi-annually and contain a large core of iconic carry-over styles, all in line with our idea of slow fashion.
