Elvis & Kresse use excess Burberry leather to create stylish sustainable bags

At least 120 tonnes of quality leather off cuts from Burberry pieces will be used by sustainable luxury company Elvis and Kresse to create new luxury lifestyle accessories.

They will transform at least 120 tonnes of leather off cuts from the production of Burberry products into a range of accessories any homeware.

It’s estimated that at least 800,000 tonnes of leather waste are produced by the global leather industry every year.

Christopher Bailey, a trustee of The Burberry Foundation and President and Chief Creative Officer of Burberry Group, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the work of Elvis & Kresse. Leather is a precious material, yet many of the off cuts generated by the design process are seen as worthless. We believe that this can change, and we are proud to lead the way.”
