SCHARLAU belongs to the company Scharlab S.L. that specialises in the supply of consumables and chemical and microbiological laboratory material. We work hard to guarantee the efficient use of available natural resources and raw materials. Our facilities, located in a natural setting surrounded by forests, were designed to reduce the company's environmental impact. Environmental protection is one of our main concerns.

One item forever

We use resistant, high-quality materials that ensure a long product lifetime. From the very beginning, we have been committed to designing products with a very long useful life. The most environmentally friendly thing we can do is to produce fewer things that last for a very long time. One example of this would be the reinforcement of all parts subject to abrasion in our leather items, through the use of a very resistant high-tech material. Another example is the use of CORDURA® nylon in our Collection No.1. CORDURA® is the leading brand of ballistic nylon. This fabric is protected by a layer that improves its resistance to abrasion and extends its durability. CORDURA® lasts twice as long as conventional nylon. It is 50% more resistant to abrasion and offers 2.5 times more protection against tears than other comparable fabrics.

The goal is to prevent people from wasting resources by shopping frequently and instead have them purchase a product that will last a lifetime if they treat it well and take good care of it. SCHARLAU items can be passed down from generation to generation or recycled to live another life.

We submit all our products to a rigorous control process in the laboratory of the Textile Industry Research Association (AITEX) to guarantee the resistance of the manufacturing and materials that make up each collection.

One item forever

Pelle: un materiale naturale e sostenibile

Per noi la pelle è uno dei materiali più belli ed eleganti. Ci piace lavorarci, soprattutto perché è durevole, pratico, naturale e sostenibile. Progettiamo, produciamo e vendiamo accessori di alta qualità che dureranno per molti, molti anni. La campagna internazionale "Real Leather" ci ricorda le qualità che rendono desiderabile la pelle, la sua lunga storia e il suo contributo a una società più sostenibile.

Recycled paper and forest sustainability

Our shipping boxes, catalogues, labels and pendants are made from recycled or PEFC paper, which ensures that the world's forests are managed responsibly and that their multitude of functions are protected for present and future generations.

Energy

We annually review our energy consumption and implement measures to reduce it. A reduction in consumption has been achieved thanks to the installation of LED lighting. We have approved a project for next year for the production of renewable energy from solar panels.

Repairs

If any SCHARLAU item is damaged, we provide our customers with access to our repair service, which is in charge of ensuring that as little material is wasted as possible.

Environmental regulations

In order to guarantee ecological balance and reduce our impact on the natural environment, SCHARLAU and its suppliers comply with environmental regulations: REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) and RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances). Our company was one of the first companies in Spain to implement the ISO 14000 environmental guarantee standard.

Waste

Minimising waste is part of our Corporate Culture. All of our waste is managed by companies authorised by the authorities for this purpose.
