About Hozen


WE LOVE FASHION—BUT WE LOVE THE EARTH, TOO.
It’s Hozen's deeply rooted commitment to respecting and protecting the planet that sparked the vision for HOZEN as a sustainable accessories brand that underlines the philosophy that doing good can look as good as it feels. Staying true to its Japanese meaning of conservation, HOZEN’s minimal-meets-irreverent aesthetic is a rebellion against the harsh realities of the leather and fashion
industries.

HOZEN bags boast eco-friendly, biopolyoil (grain-based) leather and suede; Piñatex® (pineapple leaf fibers); recycled plastic / organic cotton twill
lining; zippers and thread made with 100% post-consumer recycled
plastic; natural rubber and remnant rope; recycled cotton labels; and
packaging and hangtags made with recycled paper. Each piece is produced in small batches at a fair-wage factory in Los Angeles and is accompanied with an “I Made Your Bag” card, featuring the smiling face
of the maker whose hands crafted it.

The brainchild of Rae Nicoletti, who studied hand leatherwork at San Francisco’s Amblard Leather Atelier under Hermés master artisan Beatrice Amblard, HOZEN is much more than a vegan accessories line. Nicoletti’s vision is a bold new approach to fashion that brings together consumerism and good conscience in a way
that’s as fashion-forward as it is earth-forward. In 2019, Rae was
inducted into the Female Founder Collective, a network enabling and
empowering female-owned and led businesses to positively impact
communities, both socially and economically.

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 our products and customers.
