Bareke promotes the sustainable cultivation and production of caña flecha (arrow cane) and palm trees used in the manufacturing of their pieces.

Therefore, we support indigenous communities and artisans involved in planting and working with these palms, encouraging the responsible use of natural resources to meet present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

SUSTAINABILITY

This sustainable production involves environmentally friendly practices and cleaner production methods throughout the caña flecha supply chain. The cultivation is done without the use of chemicals, and the dyes for the palm are natural, making use of the palm leaves that also provide benefits as fertilizer for the soil used in cultivation

Taking care of the environment has been one of Bareke’s essential goals. That’s why we have a line of chromium-free leather supplies, where chrome salts are not used in the tanning process. Water consumption is reduced by 20% compared to traditional leather tanning methods. Additionally, this helps protect the ozone layer, as we use water-based products free of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

With the purpose of creating an alternative to animal leather, BarekeBareke Create a line sustainable plant based material as an alternative to leather made from cactus, often distinguished by its great softness at touch while offering a great performance for a wide variety of applications and complying with the most rigorous quality and environmental standards.

The aim is to offer cruelty free, sustainable alternatives, without any toxic chemicals, phthalates and PVC. The cactus material, is partially biodegradable and has the technical specifications required by the fashion, leather goods.

The life cycle of chromium-free leather and vegan leather is the same as traditionally tanned leather, which means that under normal conditions of use, products made by Bareke can last from 5 to 10 years in perfect conditions.

Bareke has collaboratively developed with the women of the Santo Domingo community in Mojana Sucre, a line of climate-adaptive handbags, manufactured using BUCHON, an invasive palm that disrupts the natural dynamics of these ecosystems. By removing this palm from the rivers for the production of these pieces, climate adaptation actions are generated, simultaneously impacting the social and cultural lives of the women in this region.
