BN have been a long-term supplier of Elk starting with a small collection in 2013. They are now one of Elk's main suppliers of leather goods. All leathers are sourced from LWG tanneries which is an association that sets high industry standards and audits tanneries for environmental performance. Additionally, all products are passed by REACH standard regulations, meaning they are made with restricted levels of specific chemical substances in their goods.
They are a family business with all members of the immediate and extended family playing key roles. We visit BN at least twice a year and Elk have people on the ground working with them on transparency, quality and operational standards.
