Step 2.

Purposeful design

The design process of leather goods starts with the aspect of traceability and circularity. From our perspective, that means that the design should support future repairs, be recycled, and have the possibility to be re-sold after being used for a longer period of time.

 

All leathers are vegetable tanned, to respect our planet and our strive towards circularity.

Step 1.

Responsible sourcing

By working directly with family-owned Swedish farms with the highest attention to animal protection and welfare, we can 100% trace all leather parts of the leather goods. The biggest farm we collaborate with has 250 animals and the smallest around 20. We exclusively work with leathers from bovines above 12 months of age.

Our value chain set-up provide:

01

Digital ID via the RSiD

02

Circularity & Ownership in the digital client ID, RSiD

03

On-demand production using our unique sourcing and design LeatherformulaID set-up

04

Insights, sourcing, and supply chain information in the digital RSiD

05

Direct communication & sourcing from farms that prioritizes animal welfare and protection

The RSiD: A commitment to animal protection

At Josefin Liljeqvist, we believe that true luxury is created with intention, soul, and a commitment to beauty. We collaborate with Swedish farms that prioritize animal welfare, ensuring 100% traceability from farm to the final design. All of our leather is sourced as a byproduct of the meat industry, and we encourage conscious consumption by using less leather and consuming less meat for a healthier planet.

Our proprietary software, Responsible Systems, collects data on all leather goods sourcing and production processes through a unique Digital identifier called RSiD. This ID collects information throughout the value chain to drive change and innovation toward a world that prioritizes animal welfare.

Why leather traceability matters: The Numbers

14,5%

of global GreenHouseGas Emissions comes from factory farming and unethical supply chains.

750 M 

farms globally. Data shows that small family-owned farms go out of business and are replaced with factory farming.

55%

of global antibiotics are given to animals in factory farming.

Step 3.

A dedication to details

Motivated to reframe fashion's relationship with nature and natural ecosystems, we design and produce leather goods that carry an urgent message; that we need to be transparent when it comes to animal protection in fashion to know the full value and impact of a leather-based design. 

 

We choose leathers, not from the classical quality stamp of A-C or 1-3 but from where it has been sourced and the design follows the surface of the leather.

Step 4.

RSiD, Trusted traceability

Through our proprietary software, Responsible Systems all our leather goods come with a Digital ID, called RSiD. The RSiD (Responsible Systems iDentification) contains information about from farm to fashion.

 

It digitally collects ProductID, LeatherID, ClientID, AnimalID, FarmID, SlaughterhouseID, TanneryID, ProductionID, SalteryID, and LeatherFormulaID. Allowing 100 % leather goods traceability, from farm to client and beyond.

Step 5.

Activate RSiD traceability 

Upon delivery of your unique leather product, you activate the RSiD in your account, in the membership area by pressing "activate" under your RSiD design. Upon activating the RSiD, it links to a reverse supply chain network allowing data transparency to the B2C client. This is valid via Responsible Systems Supply chain partners such as farms, artisans, tanneries, slaughterhouses and more.
