Why we love it: HOZEN’s minimal-meets-irreverent aesthetic is a rebellion against the harsh realities of the leather and fashion industries; the bags’ circular shape honors the infinite nature of the universe.'
It is HOZEN's deeply rooted commitment to respecting and protecting the planet which lead to their philosophy that doing good can look as good as it feels. HOZEN bags are super eco-friendly, created with: biopolyoil (grain-based) leather and suede, Piñatex® (pineapple leaf fibers), recycled plastic, organic cotton, 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, and natural rubber. Each piece is produced in small batches at a fair-wage factory in Los Angeles and 10% of all their profits go to Mercy for Animals. HOZEN is the brainchild of Rae Nicoletti, who studied hand leatherwork at San Francisco’s Amblard Leather Atelier under Hermés master artisan Beatrice Amblard.
