Each and every piece of this collection is made with integrity and kindness by artisans, using traditional techniques, showcasing their expertise and craftsmanship. With great effort and joy these artisans select the cutting and the right colors in order to transform waste into a unique piece of art.

Soruka bags are made with recycled leather that has been wasted by factories (scrap and left over leather) and dead stock materials. For them, sustainability means to respect the material using every single part so that nothing goes to the waste. It also means deep respect for all the people involved in its creation and their cultures.

As the scrap leather is usually sourced from 'high end' rejects, this ensures that the quality of each piece is extraordinary compared to many recycled leather products.

Designed in timeless style that will outlive the micro trends and season, every bag is unique and an unrepeatable piece of art. The manufacturing process involves little to no machinery, keeping the energy consumption low.

NB - This bag is one off. Please only order one piece as it is un-repeatable!
Fair trade is a strategy for poverty alleviation and sustainable development. Its purpose is to create opportunities for producers who have been economically disadvantaged or marginalized by the conventional system. Soruka bags are manufactured in India. They work closely with small, independent artisans. This partnership is the best method of job creation in low income environments and also a way to preserve generational craftsmanship. All artisans receive Fair Trade wages. Using recycled materials reduces the need for new material and avoids the waste that comes with conventional manufacturing processes. Recycling is aimed at extending the lifespan of materials and goods we consume and minimising the flow into landfills Soruka bags are made with recycled leather that has been wasted by factories (scrap and left over leather) and dead stock materials. For them, sustainability means to respect the material using every single part so that nothing goes to the waste. It also means deep respect for all the people involved in its creation and their cultures. Dead stock materials: left over leather that is no longer useful to companies and is sold off due to various reasons including overstock, not meeting aesthetic requirements, too small in quantity to make on collection or no longer in season. Traditionally, the fashion houses kept their excess and rejected material for a few seasons and later they send it to the landfills. They rescue this dead stock before it is thrown away and give it a new lease of life. Because they use dead stock, scrap and left over leather it's impossible to make two identical bags. Each color combination will always be different. Each bag is unique and unrepeatable! Soruka are in the business of making life better, moving the fashion industry towards a more sustainable approach where success is measured on more than just profit margins. Their mission is to bring you beautiful timeless collections while preserving traditional techniques, while producing sustainable fashion with quality and design. They say...'every effort counts and we're sure that step by step we will contribute to the change needed to close the loop on waste.
