I started CM® when I was 16 years old with one mission in mind, to take control of the belt game. My dream in reality was to make belts an accessory that was looked upon on the same level of importance as shoes, watches or handbags.
Since 2013, CM® have been using leather alternatives for our belts. The materials are made from polyester and polyurethane. This reduces the amount of petroleum used in our products. CM® have also switched our polyurethanes to water-borne and solvent-free polyurethanes. As well as being less energy and water intensive, they are made without solvents and therefore much safer for people to work with.
CM® leather alternatives do not just look good, they are also better to the environment. Using recycled polyester instead of Brazilian calf leather, for example, creates 24 times less of an environmental impact.
By choosing vegetarian leather, CM® are demonstrating how a fashion brand can push the boundaries to make products that are beautiful, sustainable and cruelty-free. No compromises.
