Lund Leather Glossary

We use the following leathers in our line of bags & accessories.



Top grain leather is the top choice for luxury handbags due to its longevity, consistency and smooth, supple finish. We use hides that are a by-product of the meat industry, and would otherwise end up in a landfill. Instead we turn them into timeless, beautiful bags that will hopefully have a long and useful life. 


"Responsible" leather is an alternative to conventional top grain leather and is used for some of our designs. It is lower-impact than traditional leather processing for the following reasons: 

  • 100% of leather waste is repurposed into organic fertilizer for agriculture
  • Uses less energy (23,52 MJ/m2 of energy consumption) and less water (0,06 m3/m2 of water consumption) to produce. Green energy is also utilized during the production of this leather, using a photovoltaic system with a rated power of 160 kWp/year.
  • Using smart technology, pollution is reduced (80% decrease in pigments and polluting particles and 30% decrease of spray drying air consumption). 

All types of leather, including Top Grain and Responsible Leather, require regular maintenance with leather cleaners and conditioners. You can read our leather care guide here.
