Taylor Covington is 100% environmentally friendly and only supports tanneries that are government approved. Due to the overabundance of springbok in South Africa, organised culling is scheduled each year to prevent overpopulation and to preserve the natural vegetation for various African species, including their own. Additionally, such culling provides a healthy, affordable and available source of protein to the African people.
Our leathers come from the Transvaal where the cows are grain fed and live a humane and happy life. The blue skins are processed and chrome dyed at a local tannery just outside Cape Town city centre. Excess water from the tanning barrels are filtered with state of the art machinery to ensure that no chemicals are returned back to the earth.
