GOING FULL CIRCLE AND BEYOND

Leather as an art form and process has always been crucial to the development of the very social fabric of civilization. It is something that enabled man to brave the harshest climates, sustainably hunt and ensure longevity of life, along with being at the backbone of every era. Even post industrialization, life of modern homo-sapiens without leather is very difficult to imagine.

Leather as an art form and process has always been crucial to the development of the very social fabric of civilization. It is something that enabled man to brave the harshest climates, sustainably hunt and ensure longevity of life, along with being at the backbone of every era. Even post industrialization, life of modern homo-sapiens without leather is very difficult to imagine.

We believe the solution lies in Shoonya (The hindi word for 'zero'). Zero as a shape completes a full circle. In other words, a renewed focus on making every process as cyclic, renewable and recyclable as possible, every single time.

THE SIMRAN® PHILOSOPHY OF 'SHOONYA'
the simran philosophy of 'shoonya'

At the core of our Shoonya Philosophy is an endeavour to strive towards zero pollutants, zero non-recyclable waste, zero violations of animal husbandry laws and human rights norms/policies.

To achieve this, we had first had to go back to the drawing board.

This meant that every process, element and structure of our leather manufacturing chain has to be optimized for zero waste and zero advance effect on the environment.

better ingredients means a better meal

At Simran®, leather is our bread and butter. Period.

Which is why in order to achieve a processing, manufacturing and design process that is eco-friendly, our R&D teams extensively tested the various dyes, inks and tanning agents for their safety and bio-degradable compatibility. Moreover, we also actively engage in water recycling and harvesting post the industrial process. Over 50% of waste water is treated to be re-used for irrigation while the other 50% is utilized in processing again. To ensure the same becomes a standardized practice was the next milestone that we achieved across all our global and regional offices.

Today Simran® is an ISO 14001 certified organization. This environment compatibility certification is symbolic of the zero toxic waste thinking that goes into selecting all our tanning agents and processing infrastructure.

We believe that change is the most powerful tool an enlightened entrepreneur can use to broaden perceptions. Keeping in line with this philosophy, we at Simran® are re-shaping the way workforce policies and ground level job satisfaction is perceived in the leather manufacturing sector.

We are proudly SA8000 certified. This means that all our workers are compensated as per government norms and there is a complete eradication of any elements/policies/rule that lead to exploitation of labour. This helps us to ensure that even under-developed and developing regions get the chance to up-skill themselves on the ethical way to produce and process real leather.
