WHAT IS HINDUISM?

Considered one of the most ancient and complex religions of the world, Hindus believe that the universe undergoes endless cycles of creation, preservation and dissolution. Karma – the law of cause and effect by which each individual creates his own destiny by his thoughts, words and deeds – is also highly valued and respected.

WHY ARE COWS SPECIAL?

Hindus regard all animals and living beings as sacred. The cow in particular is symbolic of all living creatures, as it is considered to be a generous, tolerant, strong, and docile animal. It is well respected and honoured throughout India for its sustenance and nourishment with its continuous milk supply. In many households throughout India, cows or buffalo are honoured family members and they are not harmed or killed for any reason.

HOW IS LEATHER SOURCED?

When a cow does die, either of natural causes or by accident, their skin is used for making leather products such as bags, accessories and other functional items. In much earlier times, the skins were processed in villages; however, due to hygiene reasons it is now processed in tanneries using vegetable dyes.
