Why to buy: Aqua & Rock Black Gianna Dress is made from 100% Ecotan leather. The Ecotan Leather is part of the bio-circular Aqua&Rock's business model. It supports local organic farming by taking the leather that is a by-product of the food industry. This leather waste goes through a "Ecotan" process creating chrome free and chemical free leather. Due to this process the leather is safe to be put back into the ground as a natural organic fertiliser at its end of life. This in turn helps to feed the livestock on the organic farms. The cycle is now complete and the process can start again.
