Waxed Canvas Sourcing:
Jo Rose Design currently obtains its waxed canvas from a distributor in Missouri that sources fabric from India, but we are actively looking into other options that have deeper transparency into their supply chain.
Whenever possible, we seek hardware options that are made in the USA.
Jo Rose Design primarily sources second run veg tan leather from U.S. tanneries. This means that we do our best to source leather that has no chemicals used in the dying process. And while the hides can have slight variations or color variances due to availability, they also give each item character and help keep the cost of Jo Rose products affordable. Another positive aspect of second run leather is that tanneries consider it "waste", so we are keeping this perfectly good leather out of the landfill by turning it into beautiful new product.
