ZERO WASTE: our sustainable production model

The production process of Eledor bags is encapsulated in the ‘zero waste’ concept: a virtuous model, combining craftsmanship, respect for the environment and innovation in the production process. This approach is based on careful planning and a zero-waste philosophy, where every resource is used to its maximum potential.

The process begins with the selection of materials, from hides and skins (which in themselves represent natural animal waste) to end-of-stock pieces of fabric that are no longer used and recovered to create new products. This choice is essential to reduce the environmental impact from the earliest stages of production. Next, the design phase plays a crucial role: bags are designed not only to be aesthetically pleasing, but also to minimise material waste. This is achieved through careful pattern planning and the use of precise cutting techniques that optimise the use of fabrics.

During assembly, the focus is on efficiency and quality. The craftsmen use stitching techniques that not only ensure the durability of the product, but also minimise material waste. Any scraps are reused in other products or in the creation of decorative details, ensuring that nothing goes to waste. Finally, the packaging of the bags follows the same principle of sustainability, using recycled or easily recyclable materials, avoiding those that are harmful to the environment.

In this way, the sustainable production of handmade bags is a concrete example of how tradition and innovation can be combined for a greener future. By adopting environmentally conscious practices, artisans demonstrate that it is possible to create high quality products without compromising the health of our planet.

The adoption of a zero-waste model in the production of handmade Made in Italy bags is not only a significant step towards environmental sustainability, but also a strong added value for the entire facility. The concept of sustainability at Eledor is based on the reduction, reuse and recycling of all materials used in the production process, with the aim of minimising environmental impact and valorising every resource.

In the context of Italian craftsmanship, known throughout the world for its quality and design, the integration of sustainable practices is intended to stimulate creativity and innovation, pushing artisans and entrepreneurs to exploring new techniques and materials, such as recycled fabrics or reused production wastewhich can result in unique, high quality products.

Adopting a zero-waste model also means optimising production processes, reducing waste disposal costs and improving efficiency. This not only benefits the environment, but also improves the economic sustainability of the business. In the end, choosing the path of zero waste is an ethical commitment that enhances Italy’s craft heritage, protects the planet and builds a more sustainable future for generations to come.
