Cocoona | Brand Story
Welcome to Cocoona.
We're an Austrian-based, luxury leather handbag company that produces high quality, handcrafted products with sustainable materials.
In addition to being steadfastly dedicated to exceptional quality, we are deeply passionate about the environment and incorporate these principles into our production process. Our values of responsible fashion are infused into all aspects of our business – from our choice of materials to how we run our supply chain. We believe in creating beautiful designs with high quality leathers whilst using sustainable ways to produce them. This means that by choosing Cocoona as your designer bag partner, you're supporting us on this journey to create positive change for future generations to come!
Let’s face it, your handbag is one of the most important items you carry. It's with you every day so it needs to be something that reflects your unique personality and style. One thing that will remain consistent in our collections, however, is the uncompromising quality and durability of our products and the emphasis we place on achieving our bold mission to create ultra-luxe items that are not compromising on our environment.
In pursuit of this aim, our brand only sources ethical and sustainable suppliers and ensures that our leather and materials come from Italy and are designed and manufactured in Europe, maintaining the region’s longstanding tradition of fine craftsmanship. In this way we not only reduce our footprint but also support our local tanneries, which will always remain important to our small business with big dreams.
The reality is that only about one fifth of the leather in the world is being produced in European tanneries, where uncompromising environmental and safety standards along with sustainable processes are standard requirements. For this reason, utilizing factories that work within the framework set up by SEDEX results in superior quality and long lasting materials, which warrants the title of a genuine luxury product.
What’s more is that Cocoona’s leather is a by-product of the meat industry, meaning that you can rest assured that no animal is harmed for the leather we use. Leather tanning is, in fact, the oldest form of recycling without which, the world would see a hugely detrimental environmental impact.
By establishing a line of luxury leather handbags that are made with the longevity of our planet in mind, we are contributing to the growing global efforts to combat fast fashion and wastage at the same time as offering our valued clientele an opportunity to invest in items that will last as long as they love them.
Our Factory gets regularly screened to ensure that the following standard are met under the European Legislations.
- ISO 9001 Quality management
- ISO 14001 Environmental management
- ISO 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management
- SEDEX Framework that our factory works under.
