The Eco Part...
The Pāua (the Māori for this abalone) Haliotis iris species is sustainably harvested form the South Island New Zealand.
The Tahitian pearls come direct from a pearl farm in the Tuomotu Islands of French Polynesia.
The kangaroo leather comes from a 5th generation (105 years in business), small tannery in Australia specializing in vegetable tanned and sustainably sourced materials.
