“As a designer, I am committed to ensuring that my products are of the highest quality and serve a good purpose. Natural leather possesses great advantages that meet my expectations. Footwear made from leather is comfortable, resistant to damage, and most importantly, safe for health. Natural leather is an exclusive, beautiful, and timeless material. Items made from it are always synonymous with luxury and elegance. Working with leather gives me the satisfaction and confidence of being able to offer a quality product”, - says Katarzyna.

With her recent shoe collection crafted exclusively from leather, Katarzyna says that she: “partially customized it with my own prints using a UV technique.

Leather's timeless nature is mirrored in humanity's own evolution and innovation. Even today, leather and its sustainable features keeps inspiring young designers worldwide who are not only striving to make a statement in the fashion world but are also committed to sustainable practices.
Their work with leather is a step towards a greener, carbon-neutral future, blending traditional craftsmanship with contemporary values. Thus, choosing to wear leather is not only historically justified, but also an environmentally responsible decision.

Katarzyna: “Purchasing leather shoes or accessories represents a long-term investment, offering considerable savings and environmental benefits. A pair of leather shoes can last for many years, whereas products made from synthetic materials often struggle to last even a single season”.
