Pelechecoco: Rocking the sustainable leather look
No wardrobe is complete without a leather biker jacket, but let’s face it as darn good as leather feels or looks, it ain’t environmentally friendly given the chemicals, chemical waste and water use in making just one leather jacket.
But there’s good news for leather fans in the form of Danish Brand, Pelechecoco.
Pelechecoco is a sustainable fashion brand that recreates classic and affordable leather pieces, including jackets and bags, that are unique and good for the environment too.
To produce a new leather jacket, from beginning to end, uses 7,996 gallons of water and at least 10 different chemicals are added in the process to smooth the skins.
According to Pelechecoco, the brand uses 26 gallons of water in the production of 100 jackets, they don’t use any chemicals and no animals are killed in the process.
Pelechecoco say: “To make the choice to look after our planet really should be common sense. We should look after the things we have and reuse as many of our resources as possible. Going green/sustainable enables you to always stand out. No two pieces are ever the same and that uniqueness is given to us for free just by joining the movement and choosing to reuse these castaway goods.”
Pelechecoco have a range of leather jackets and bags to suit all tastes. They also come in a range of colours.

We have a world full of materials ready to be recycled, and given a new life – without using any additional resources and further pollute our world.
