HAWTAN LEATHERS sustainability PRACTICES

Hawtan Leathers is a leading global leather manufacturer dedicated to promoting sustainable environmental best practices within our organization. We're committed to constantly improving our environmental management systems by reducing water usage, energy consumption, and controlling waste management. Hawtan Leathers believes in fair and responsible commerce and sustainable practices as a platform to help alleviate poverty in Haiti.

We work with Haiti Design Coop and Deux Mains and a number of local artisans who employ impoverished women and men at fair trade wages and give them access to safe jobs, sustainable incomes and a chance to determine their own future. These groups strive to create positive change by providing market place access through the fair production and sale of their beautiful and unique pieces made from our leather.

We believe that every purchase from The Haiti Design Coop and Deux Mains should be made with a purpose, and that there is nothing more stylish than giving back. Haiti Design Co-op and Deux Mains' mission is to build sustainable partnerships with marginalized groups in Haiti by connecting them to the global marketplace. They work to break the cycle of poverty by providing artisans with the tools, training and support needed to reclaim their futures and thrive as independent business men and women. When you purchase handmade, fair trade products from Haiti Design Coop or Deux Mains, you are investing in the future of the people of Haiti.
