HOZEN designs timeless, minimalist, luxury accessories made from vegan materials, which are eco-friendly, plant-based, and recycled materials. Working with local artisans based in LA, accessories are constructed from alternative sustainable materials that are non-toxic and water-based, particularly PU leather (thermoplastic polymer). PU leather uses 75% less carbon dioxide than traditional leather while maintaining durability and is waterproof. HOZEN's business operations strictly follow high standards of ethics, responsibility, and governance to ensure their products and practices are sustainable. The brand produces in small batches to prevent overproduction and offsets its carbon footprint from the transportation of products and operations by purchasing carbon credits. Furthermore, HOZEN offers free repairs for any product defects and repairs for normal wear and tear for a fee to extend the life of their products and reduce waste in the environment. They also offer a recycling program that allows customers to send back their used bags to HOZEN where they will have the materials recycled for you to foster circularity even at the end of the product's life.
