TRMTAB’s cleverly designed, limited edition bags and accessories are upcycled from a leather factory’s production waste. Collaborating with a factory in India, TRMTAB founders discovered that each production cycle can generate up to 4,000 lbs of waste. So, they worked with the factory craftsmen to create refined leather tech sleeves from the scraps.
