Say hello to Luz Zambrano, the innovative mind behind the sustainable leather brand, CASUPO. Our conversation will take you on a journey from Luz’s early days in industrial design, all the way to her spearheading her own brand, showing how millions of cow hides can be saved from going to waste annually. We’ve got insights into her experiences with factories across China, Mexico, and Italy, and the birth of CASUPO from her vision of turning left-over leather into superior products. 

Venture with us as we explore the sustainable leather landscape, where Luz shares the process of upcycling leather from tanneries and the positive environmental impact of vegetable dyes. We’ll also get a sneak peek into the future of CASUPO, diving into their upcoming collections and Luz’s commitment to use her profits to back environmental causes. 

Tune in to understand how Luz is remolding the concept of sustainability in the leather industry with CASUPO. Discover a fresh perspective on sustainable fashion; it’s an opportunity you wouldn’t want to miss!
