At Miljours Studio, we are continually working to improve our sustainability practices because we believe it is possible to create and express creativity without neglecting our environment. Thus, we pay particular attention to the choice of our materials, our environmental impact, our supply chain as well as our social impact.


Vegetable tanning

  • Chemical free
  • Skin treatment process (tanning) is made from plants, such as oak bark, mimosa or tara


    • The majority of our leather goods are made in our Montreal workshop
    • Part of our collection is made in Florence, Italy by a small mother-daughter company made up of 4 people, based a few kilometers from our tanners

    Certified leather

    • The tannery with which we have been working for almost 2 years is certified by "The Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium", a non-profit organization whose mission is to safeguard the centuries-old tradition of vegetable tanning, to guarantee the quality of the raw material and workmanship and to promote the know-how of Tuscan tanners in the world
    • All tanneries certified by the Consortium must comply with production rules, particularly in terms of traceability, human factor and shelf life

    Our impact


    • Offset our GHGs via Compensation CO2 Quebec for all parcels received from our suppliers in 2020 (both manufacturer side and boutique product suppliers) and for the 1st quarter of 2021 (January to March)
    • Employee transport : electric cars locations, walking, cycling and metro


      • Reuse of packaging received and donations to local designers to avoid buying plastic
      • Reduction, or even almost complete abolition of the purchase of any product containing plastic
      • Recyclable packaging, reusable poly mailers, furoshikis
      • Creation of new models primarily from what we already have in stock

        Waste management

        • Creation of collections from our leather scraps
        • Minimization of in-store waste (reusable containers, washable face covers, reduction of the use of paper, proper sorting of waste, etc.)



          • Carefully select our suppliers according to their environmental practices, their choice of raw materials and the working conditions of their employees
          • Adapt our supplier orders to our use in order to reduce waste and only order what will be used / sold

            Local manufacturers

            • Showcase local artisans who practice Slow Made

              Ethical working

              • Pay our employees a fair wage in a healthy environment in addition to offering them benefits such as paid vacation

                Social implication

                Relationship with stakeholders

                • Visit of the tanneries and factories where we produce in Italy to ensure the respect of the workers and the environment
                • Selection of suppliers based on their ethical practices (ensure that we share the same vision)
                  Give back
                  • Donation of profits made with our furoshikis to various social causes (currently, to the organization Autisme sans limites which works for the development and social inclusion of young adults with autism)
