Social Responsibility

At Deadly Ponies we have strong ethical standards and understand our responsibilities to our clients and the environment as a manufacturer, retailer, and employer. Since we began in 2005, Deadly Ponies have taken pride in working with production partners and suppliers, both locally and internationally, who uphold our own stringent manufacturing ethics. Through this network we have formed a family of trusted third-party contractors who constantly strive to better themselves in all aspects of their work.

A commitment to beautifully soft, ethically and locally-sourced leathers is intrinsic to the Deadly Ponies story. Our popular farmed-deer leather is sourced from the South Island of New Zealand from companies who share in our vision and who are committed to upholding our ethical and environmental standards. As such, all leathers we use are either as a result of natural casualties or are a byproduct of meat production. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and operate under a business model built on corporate responsibility. We are considerate consumers and design our bags for longevity.
