ONAR strive towards creating a culture of
respect within the many facets of their business.
From the materials used to the construction and
on to the consumer, their core responsibility is
how the collections are created in harmony
with the wider environmental and social landscape.
RESPECT TOWARDS PEOPLE
ONAR are proud to work with skilled artisans to
create pieces of exquisite quality.
The garments are produced by leather craftsmen
who have worked with the materials for years
and who themselves highly respect
the materials they use. The outcome is a
traceable luxury product that is
guaranteed to last for generations.
RESPECT TOWARDS THE ENVIRONMENT
The vivid leather colours are created
using vegetable dyes and the
entirety of their shearling products
are made using chrome-free tanning.
The vegetable tanning process preferred by ONAR
is a slower, more specialised method which
results in products that are biodegradable and
created without using chemicals that
are damaging the environment.
Shearlings are 100% ethically sourced from
Europe - Greece, Italy, Spain, Britain and Iceland
and the collections are handmade in Greece.
ONAR commit to a zero-waste policy within
their working practice and their pieces are
created using only secondary and existing materials.
RESPECT TOWARDS ANIMALS
In working with leathers and shearlings,
ONAR’s concern is that they respect
the natural beauty of the animals and
no living creature is exploited or harmed
for their products.
ONAR only work with suppliers
who guarantee that the animal has lived freely,
not in a cage, and they use only the by-product material
from the food industry that would otherwise go to waste.
ONAR also exclusively works with tanneries
certified by the Leather Working Group, who
on their behalf control sustainability practices
within the leather industry.
