Leather is sourced from a small family tannery in Kolkata and road-freighted to Kathmandu in bulk, to be used for all Aura Que leather and suede products; all chemicals used in the process are contained and reprocessed within the water treatment facility on site. Brass buckles and specialised fittings are handmade by artisans in Kathmandu who hand cut, file and polish local Nepalese brass into shape.  Brass offers superior recyclability and overall environmental advantages, as it can be recycled an infinite number of times with no loss in properties or performance.

Handcrafted from high quality leather in a small artisan workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal. Owner BJ produces the patterns himself, as well as making and coordinating the workshop production.
