Sustainability

All Pixie Mood bags are 100% cruelty-free and created without any animal by-products. As we continue to grow, we are constantly on the search for more sustainable and innovative materials to use in our designs.

To ensure the safety of all our workers and consumers, all our materials are tested to meet the CA Prop 65 standard annually. We take responsibility in upholding a safe environment for our consumers and workers through annual visits to our manufacturers to ensure standards are met.

Materials

Polyurethane

All our vegan leather bags are made from pure polyurethane (PU) leather which is form of synthetic leather, typically lighter than animal leather. Unlike PVC, PU does not use toxic chemicals like chlorine, which are harmful to the environment and our bodies, in the manufacturing process. It also works well in colder climates and is more durable  than PVC.

Cork

All of our cork fabric is harvested from cork oak trees in rural areas throughout Portugal. When the tree has reached 20 years of age, cork is harvested in a sustainable method of removing the bark of the tree. Cork oak trees are the only trees which can have their bark removed and continue to live and grow for over 200 years. This highly sustainable material is 100% natural, biodegradable and  can be found used in a number of our bags, such as the Nicole Pouch.

Hardware

To ensure the safety of our consumers, all our hardware is tested and compliant to the EU REACH Standard which has been adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks posed by chemicals. For more information, please visit their website.
