As part of our commitment to continuously look for more responsible ways to produce and finish our garments, HUGO BOSS is proud to be the first global fashion brand to sell substantial numbers of items made from Olivenleder®. This quality leather is tanned using leaves from olive trees, making it safe, reliable and biodegradable, having a lower environmental impact from production onwards. Now, HUGO BOSS introduces a range of styles in this innovative material.
The innovative wet-green® tanning process is completely free of harmful substances, making it safer for the environment and workers
Olive leaves are a by-product of the olive industry, and are normally considered waste. Olivenleder® reuses this resource and provides additional income for farmers.
Dying leather that is tanned this way requires fewer chemicals, further reducing the environmental impact of production
