Chiban Leather is a leather manufacturing company with a strong social focus based in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Eden, the founder of Chiban Leather wanted to create a work place for the marginalized and vulnerable youth who usually lives in the outskirts of the city. By offering them favorable labor conditions, working closely with a network of local tanneries and using locally sourced materials, Eden wants to create as much positiv impact as possible in her community.
The animals are living on the fields of the Ethiopian country side for years. They treat them in an organic way. Someday when the time comes, they bring them over to Addis Adeba, where they will be slaughtered and skinned within a day. All products are used, the skin is distributed to the tanneries and the meat is spread to the local Butchery.
