HOZEN represents a peaceful rebellion against the harsh realities of the leather and fashion industries, bringing form, function, and fairness together as one. HOZEN accessories are crafted lovingly from eco-friendly, plant-based leathers, post-consumer recycled plastic zippers and thread; natural rubber and remnant rope; recycled cotton labels; and recycled paper packaging and hang tags—all of it sourced from factories around the world with high standards of ethics, responsibility, and governance. The brand remains guided by a simple philosophy as it evolves: Doing good can—and should—look as incredible as it feels.
The word HOZEN translates as ‘conservation’ in Japanese. Hozen is committed to preserving Planet Earth for future generations through ethical manufacturing practices. They primarily employ recycled materials, utilize innovative eco-friendly textiles, seek to minimize material waste, and use other tools like carbon offsets to counteract the environmental cost related to connecting their products and customers.
