Embracing Sustainability: A Leather Revolution

Did you know that over 500,000 tons of leather go to waste annually? The traditional leather industry often discards 60% of the hide, leading to environmental havoc in landfills and water bodies. Soruka is rewriting this narrative. Their artisans meticulously utilize every scrap of leather, striving to achieve zero waste. Each handcrafted piece is born from unused leather, ensuring not just quality but also a commitment to our planet's well-being.

Supporting Real Artisans with Real Wages

All of Soruka’s bags are made in India by small, independent artisans from rural communities, with whom they work closely to help grow their business and production capabilities. The partnership with them is the best method of job creation in low income environments and also a way to preserve generational craftsmanship. All of Soruka’s artisans are trained adults over 18, who receive beyond fair trade wages. This economic empowerment gives them the opportunity to stay in their villages, supporting their family, and they will be less likely to migrate to urban areas.

One-of-a-kind Recycled Leather Handbags, Wallets, Totes and Purses

Our bags are made with recycled leather that has been wasted by factories (scrap and left over leather) and dead stock materials. Sustainability means to respect the material using every single part you can so nothing goes to the waste. Dead stock materials are left over leather that is no longer useful to companies and is sold off due to various reasons including overstock, not meeting aesthetic requirements, too small in quantity to make a collection or no longer in season.

Because these pieces are made from dead stock materials, scrap and left over leather, it is impossible to make two identical bags, which makes each bag unique and unrepeatable! Each color combination will always be different which means that each bag in our store in the Soruka collection is truly a one-of-a-kind masterpiece!
