OLIVER CO'S

Fusion of Innovation & Tradition

Oliver Co's commitment to craftsmanship is at the heart of everything they do. The brand has established a strong relationship with their factory partners in Istanbul, Turkey, where a team of 30 artisans, led by leather master Mehmet Ali, specialize in small leather goods.

Working with innovative vegan materials like their signature Apple Leather can be challenging, but the team, together with Mehmet, has developed new tools and innovative solutions to deliver the same craftsmanship and detail you would expect from the most premium accessories on the market. Each piece is crafted with exquisite attention to detail, ensuring that every accessory is a true work of art.

At Oliver Co, quality is never compromised, and this dedication to craftsmanship is evident in every stitch.

MATERIALS

AppleSkin™

AppleSkin, is a bio-based material made using the leftover pomace & peel from the fruit juice and compote industry. The fabric originates from the region of Bolzano in northern Italy and is created by taking the recovered apple waste & reducing it to a powder. The powder is then combined with polyurethane and coated onto a cotton & polyester canvas in a factory located in Florence. The apple leather used in Oliver Co. products is made using 50% apple waste mixed with 50% PU, resulting in a durable but soft fabric that is perfect for hard-wearing small accessories. It is a completely renewable resource, reducing the CO2 impact significantly compared to faux leather made from 100% fossil fuels.

Mirum®

MIRUM® is a new 100% bio-based material made from natural inputs and is completely plastic-free. Oliver Co. discovered the potential of bio-based materials early in their journey and was thrilled to find that these innovative materials often utilized leftover waste from the fruit industry, thus having a considerably lower environmental impact. MIRUM® has been created to strike a balance between biodegradation speed and durability and performance, meaning it lasts for many years and performs with outstanding quality. It is made in the USA, utilizing renewable wind energy, and is made by mixing the natural ingredients in precise amounts.

ORGANIC COTTON

All of the cotton used in Oliver Co. products is GOTs certified organic cotton, grown organically without using insecticides or pesticides. GOTs certification assures consumers that the most ecological and socially responsible methods have been used throughout the entire production process.

The cotton fabric used is made in Turkey and of excellent quality, with long fibers that are strong and soft. Oliver Co.'s supplier only uses so-called Aegean organic cotton, grown and processed in the region southeast of Izmir. The supplier has built a great working relationship with weaving and knitting companies there since 2005, all of which are GOTS certified.

RECYCLED POLYESTER

The recycled polyester used in Oliver Co.'s collection is GRS and OEKO-TEX certified. Using 100% recycled polyester for the brand's vegan wallets reduces CO2 emissions by up to 29%, energy consumption by 44%, and water consumption by 16% compared to virgin polyester.

Oliver Co.'s recycled polyester is GRS (Global Recycling Standard) certified, verifying that any product contains at least 20% recycled material. The mechanical recycling process is currently the most common form of polyester recycling, but the chemical recycling process has the potential to close the loop on polyester recycling with less environmental impact in the future. The recycled polyester is completely safe and OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified, tested to be free of harmful levels of more than 100 restricted chemicals.
