Avoiding waste is essential. The manufacturing process of our products only begins once your order is placed. Then it takes us up to 15 days to create your Deren Rice by hand.
MADE TO ORDER
Reducing waste is essential. Manufacturing on demand ensures we only produce what we know is going to be used. We see this made-to-order model of production as a way to fight back against many of the worst aspects of the fashion industry. Let's explain how:
When we make to order we have a closer connection with our customers, and we can produce something that truly fits your lifestyle. Our goal is always usefulness and efficiency. With this model of course we produce less, but what’s more, we create a bag that suits your lifestyle, and lets you live an easier day-to-day.
We are not here to drive overconsumption, and so we should never have any overstock . We only use the materials that there is demand for, meaning we keep the waste to an absolute minimum.
Less materials need less space, and so our footprint gets smaller every step of the way, as we reduce the energy demand for storage and transportation.
It’s not just about challenging the environmental side of things, but also the issues related to sizing. With a piece made just for you, you are not forced to fit yourself into industry standards. We are here for social good as well as environmental.
DEREN RICE WORKSHOP · BARCELONA
All our products are hand produced in our own facilities in Barcelona, in order to control every process of manufacture and to ensure the quality of our products.
WHY IS NON-LEATHER BETTER THAN THE ANIMAL LEATHER?
Fits of all, because we do not kill animals to make our bags. Non-Leather captures the essence of leather without the negative impact on people, animals, or the planet. It also outperforms leather: it is water, stain, and scratch resistant, and just one third of the weight. What's more, here are no toxic by-products or off-gassing with our material, which is common in most traditional and alternative leathers.
We offer free shipping in orders over 200€ in the EU. We ship orders Monday through Friday from our offices in Barcelona. Shipments are made with UPS Standard and could take up to 5 days. Check out HERE the shipping costs and more details.
ARE YOUR BAGS VEGAN?
Yes they are! Our bags are 100% vegan from our Non-leather material, down to our dyes and glues.
WHERE ARE YOUR BAGS MADE AND HOW DO YOU ENSURE THE QUALITY?
All DEREN RICE products are produced in our workshop in Barcelona. We are very particular about quality. That’s why we produce all our products by hand in our own workshop. We build our bags to last. Additionally, we offer a lifetime warranty.
We seek to be useful. Useful for you, useful for the planet, and useful for all humankind. Some might say it’s subjective, but for us the concept is clear: a bag is useful when it keeps everything you need to get you through the day. That’s why we accurately classify our products by the size of the tools they are suited to. At Deren Rice, the form will always follow the function.
We believe there is another way. As such, we are tireless in our search for innovation in animal leather alternatives. These developments represent hope in an industry that is currently unsustainable. We always seek to share what we find with our community, whilst integrating the new discoveries into our own production process.
