Supply Chain

We’ve partnered with several companies to help us measure and reduce the environmental impacts of our products throughout their life cycle.

Leather Working Group
Certified Tanneries

Established in 2005, the objective of the Leather Working Group (LWG) is to develop and maintain a protocol that assesses the environmental compliance and performance capabilities of leather tanneries and promotes sustainable and appropriate environmental business practices within the leather industry. 

Today, 87% of our leather is sourced from LWG tanneries that comply with environmental sourcing processes and sustainable water usage. Many of our top styles are crafted with leather sourced from Gold Certified tanneries, the highest standard awarded.

Established in 2007, REPREVE® is the leading, most trusted, branded performance fiber made from recycled materials (including plastic bottles). REPREVE® offsets using new petroleum, emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserving water and energy in the process. That makes a big difference for our future. To date, they have transformed over 16 billion recycled plastic bottles into recycled fibers.

Conserving Resources

In Spring 2020, Sakroots will be launching a recycled collection called Seascape which features REPREVE® exterior material and lining. Our goal is to have all Sak bags made with 100% recycled lining materials by 2023. 

Founded in 1980, PETA is dedicated to establishing and defending the rights of all animals.

Many of The Sak bags feature our PETA-Approved Vegan Certified heritage crochet yarn, which we have been using for 30 years.

100% of Sakroots is PETA Approved Vegan Certified using materials free of animal byproducts
