RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION & SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT
At PLUSKA, we take pride in creating locally produced, high-quality leather goods that are not only timeless but also environmentally conscious. Our brand is built on the principles of sustainability, supporting local crafts, and empowering skilled artisans.
Each of PLUSKA bag is meticulously crafted to order in our trusted local workshop, with a focus on limiting excess and waste through Lean Manufacturing. This means that every handbag is a sovereign piece of work, receiving several hours of manual labor from our talented and hardworking leathercraft makers.
We utilize upcycled small leather scraps that would otherwise go to waste in the industrial mass production process. We actively repurchase these scraps from other leather apparel factories in Poland, where proper waste management is lacking. By transforming these discarded materials into luxurious and timeless fashion pieces, we cater to conscious consumers who value both style and environmental responsibility.
At PLUSKA, we are more than just a brand; we are a community that values the skills and contributions of every individual. Our bags are manufactured by re-employed craftsmen and craftswomen over the age of 50, who have faced challenges due to automation and digitization in the labor market. By collaborating with them, we provide a sense of belonging and appreciation, making them an essential part of our mission.
When you choose PLUSKA, you choose more than just a bag; you choose to support regional creativity, invest in local communities, and reduce the carbon footprint. Join us in making informed purchasing decisions and embrace the elegance of sustainable fashion that stands the test of time. Together, we can make a positive impact on the fashion industry and beyond.
