About our Shearling, Leathers and Wools:
HiSO’s mission is to design silhouettes that compliment all figures and make an impact as you move. Our goal is to make waves in outerwear and to offer customers a kind of confidence and individuality that won’t feel dated six months later. To this end we source the most exquisite and sustainable shearlings, precious fabrics and leathers. We have deliberately chosen natural materials that are rich in diversity and perfectly traceable.
Sheepskin and leather products are by-products of the meat industry and we are essentially reclaiming materials that would otherwise be disposed of and avoiding any environmental impact in terms of animal breeding. Our priority is to preserve resources including animal species, water and energy and to reduce air and water pollution. In using these biodegradable materials, otherwise carelessly discarded, we are responsibly reducing landfill by avoiding waste. Wearing a shearling, leather or wool coat is no different than wearing a cow’s pelt with the hair removed. In owning any one of our pieces, consider that they have been sourced from the same places that have lead to the development of much of the clothing, shoes and accessories fashion that exists in the market.
Genuine sheepskin, leathers and wools will decompose back into the earth, so when the product’s life span is over, it doesn’t lie in a landfill for hundreds of years as do synthetic materials.
Shearling, lambskins, leathers and wools are expensive materials and we believe in minimizing our environmental footprint. We create products on-demand, meaning that pieces are cut to order only. We strive to hold no inventory on products or materials, thus ensuring a lean business.
