Our Accessories line is produced in a workshop in the City of Guadalajara, Mexico that has specialized in the production of handbags and other accessories for more than 25 years. The first part of the production process relates to sampling and patterns, which brings the product to life. The production lies in the hands of a team of less than seven people, led by Pedro and Óscar, the production managers. At the moment we are not able to ensure a production powered by renewable and clean energy. It is a trade-off that we accept in order to produce in a family-owned local workshop that promotes decent work and observes living wages for all employees, addressing one of our fundamental values.
SENTIENT was born to spread and reinforce the message that humans and animals share the powerful ability to feel, and as sentient beings, animals deserve our respect and compassion. For this reason we are dedicated to creating uniquely designed and quality-driven vegan alternatives to leather apparel and accessories.
We are committed to sustainability through the disruption and betterment of the processes, materials and supply chains that we engage in, but also through the creation of positive environmental impact at a larger scale. We are a proud member of 1% For The Planet, a global alliance of organizations working to protect and preserve natural environments around the world, meaning that we donate at least 1 % of our proceeds for the conservation, protection and restoration of ecosystems and wildlife.
