Chiban Leather is a leather manufacturing company located in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, with a strong focus on social issues. Chiban Leather’s founder, Eden Gelan, wanted to create jobs for marginalised adolescents who usually live on the outskirts of the city and have little future prospects.
Chiban Leather works closely with a network of local tanneries and uses locally sourced materials. The leather is an industrial leftover – and can therefore show small imperfections. Care instructions: For long-lasting enjoyment, spray the bag with a leather spray.
