_The CORPORATE VALUES 

Our business is founded on the dual objectives of achieving the purposes for which it was founded and is a profitable business. The core purposes for which the business was founded are

  • no animal or animal-derived fabrics for our products and
  • more sustainable fabrics for our products which have no restricted chemicals and minimal environmental health and safety (EHS) impact 
  • contribute to raising awareness of mental health and suicide prevention initiatives   

JAMES&CO earns the trust of businesses and consumers because of

All fabrics JAMES&CO sources for its leather alternative products will be assessed for chemical input and EHS impact and only those fabrics – and the factories which make them – which meet its measurable requirements will be used for its products.
