Love, Care Advice & FAQ

An independent brand working from our studio in York, UK.

With over 17 years of experience within the fashion playground Jaci & Cane started up in 2015 hiring their avant-garde creations. Jaci & Cane have been published in over 20 editorials, performed in countless shows and worn at many parties.

Classed as slow fashion with a no waste policy, many of Jaci & Cane designs originated from salvaged leather scraps and our main fabric is vegetable tan leather. Read more at About Us

Do you offer a care & repair service?

  • Of course, leather is all about sustainability and should give you years of pleasure. If you have any leather concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch.



Vegetable tanned leather is chemical-free, the process is less harmful to the environment and workers than many other modern mass produced leathers. It is also far more sustainable than most other ‘vegan’ leather alternatives which have a high chemical/plastic content.

We only use leather that is a by-product of the meat industry, and feel proud to honor the animal and create products that will live and age well. No harmful chemicals are used in producing this leather. Produced using a naturally occurring tannin, such as tree bark, leaves and berries, which give it a beautiful look, smell, and natural finish.


To keep your leather ageing as it should we recommend careful storage, preferably wrapped in breathable fabric in a cool, dry location. We also recommend treating it from time to time with a chemical-free leather conditioner .

The leather has a protective oil to hydrate so don't worry about getting your leather wet. As the leather is natural it breathes and will dry. But do not saturate it or let it get too soaked as the molded items will lose their shape.
