Been Wondering

We're asked all the time about the materials we use, where they're from and if it's all above board. Here's the lowdown so you can tell your vegan friend...

What's so good about leather anyway?

For starters, it’s natural. That's what makes the grain and colour of every piece unique and unrepeatable, and give it the ability to develop in character as it ages. Leather is soft but strong and unlike those horrible synthetic materials, they last.

Don't take it too seriously

You change your clothes daily (hopefully), but your bag and wallet go with you every day. With our minimalistic and uncomplicated designs, you can do your thing without looking like you take yourself too seriously. No one wants that.

Were any Siberian snow leopards hurt in the process?

Status Anxiety leather is a bi-product of the food industry and sourced only from countries with strict ethical production standards. As it should be. Our furs and hides are all printed cowhides. The only exception is our Springbok bag, which is the indigenous animal of South Africa and who's population numbers are in excess of 2.5ML and are continuing to expand.

How very European of you

You should know, there’s leather, and then... there's leather. We use predominantly premium Italian, French and New Zealand leathers, and although they cost more, the hand feel and the way in which they wear, is far superior to the more commonly used and cheaper Asian leathers. Our tannery’s develop our leather just for us, some are washed, others shrunken, and some embossed.
