The founder of 88 is a lifelong vegetarian and believes that the environment would benefit from the reduction of factory farming. Various vegan leathers are used in production. The scientific names are PU (polyurethane) and PVC (polyvinylchloride) PU is better for the environment and so although more expensive 88 only use PU in our bags. 88 develop all of our own custom hardware, again with a focus on the best way for the environment and not necessarily the cheapest way.
