Ethical and Sustainable
Laurus is passionate about conservation and preservation. Each of our bags is certified by CITES, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.
Laurus also proudly maintains the following sustainable tenets:
Economic Empowerment & Artisanal Labor
The International Union for the Conservation of Nature actually advocates for the continued regulated trade of exotic reptile leathers. The scientific evidence shows that industries like ours can actually create an environment for preservation. All of our leathers are CITES certified by the UN, meaning that our materials are not from endangered species and they are produced in a way that protects animals from becoming endangered or threatened. Furthermore, by certifying each one of our bags under CITES we are continuously funding a branch of the UN that advocates for and protects other endangered species.
