Haku Leather Design was born in 2016 with the mission to empower leather artisans in Ecuador. How? By combining the ancestral expertise of crafters with simple and stylish designs to develop 100% Ecuadorian high-quality and handmade leather accessories at accessible prices, while giving the artisans a fair salary for their work.
HAKU products are meant to be long-lasting, which is why we work only with the finest materials available in the market. We employ premium leather with the best quality you can find. Our suppliers are local tanneries that comply with the highest environmental and quality standards we require. Moreover, the leather employed is a by-product from meat slaughter.
We don´t want your HAKU items to be disposable, and that´s another way we contribute to sustainability: by counteracting the effects of the fast fashion industry.
We work directly with artisans with more than 30 years of experience handcrafting leather goods. Our artisans receive a fair and steady salary for their work and they can work from home. When you buy HAKU products, you are helping us to provide fair employment and to support many families so they can overcome their underdeveloped situation. Moreover, we are seeking to preserve the unique ancestral expertise of the ecuadorian crafters, so that this beautiful practice is not lost over the years.
