Cuyana is changing the game with their Lean Closet Movement. Their slow fashion approach encourages customers to buy 'fewer better things'. The high quality and classic designs are centred around longevity. Each bag is handcrafted by craftsmen from around the world, including Argentina, Italy and the US. The team at Cuyana seek materials from around the world and then base the production in these areas to reduce shipping of raw materials. They have control over the entire end-to-end process which allow them to ensure workers are treated fairly and earn a living wage.
Sustainability is a core value at Cuyana. The leather they use is a by-product from the meat industry. At the checkout, customers are offered an option where they can send back donated clothes which will go towards women in need.
Customers can add a personal touch to the leather and canvas bags with the monogram option.
