Soruka bags are manufactured in India. They work closely with small, independent artisans to help grow their business and production capabilities. Their partnership with them is the best method of job creation in low income environments and also a way to preserve generational craftsmanship. All artisans are trained adults over 18, who receive beyond fair trade wages.
Using recycled materials reduces the need for new material and avoids the waste that comes with conventional manufacturing processes. Recycling is aimed at extending the lifespan of materials and goods we consume and minimising the flow into landfills
It is an amazing challenge to use and to transform useless pieces to useful creations, while contributing to a better future.
Soruka bags are made with recycled leather that has been wasted by factories (scrap and left over leather). They believe sustainability is to respect the material using every single part so that nothing goes to waste. It also means deep respect for all the people involved in its creation and their cultures.
Because dead stock, scrap and left over leather is used it’s impossible to make two identical bags. Each colour combination will always be different. Each bag is unique and unrepeatable!
Each and every piece of our collection is made with integrity and kindness by artisans, using traditional techniques, showcasing their expertise and craftsmanship.
Designed in timeless style that will outlive the micro trends and season, every bag is unique and unrepeatable piece of art. The manufacturing process involves little to no machinery, keeping the energy consumption low.
Soruka’s aim is to be a zero waste company and so they try to use every scrap of material. With great effort and joy their artisans select the cutting and the right colours in order to transform waste into a unique piece of art.
