1. What are your favourite outdoor activities?

I like skateboarding and surfing, mainly because both of them gives me a sort of adrenaline rush when I’m speeding. I also find these activities allow me to feel free.

2. What do you think about real leather products? 

I love real leather products as they allow me express my style and reflect my attitude.  Leather is durable and tough and in a way this reflects my attitude to life. Today, I’m wearing a leather jacket with distressed jeans and I think paired together they give off an edgy and street style feel.

I think the rise of fast fashion meant that people forgot about leather but as we move towards a more sustainable future I think leather will gain popularity again.
