Join the Arts & Ecology Lab for an evening touring the grazing pastures and celebrating sustainable design in the textile industry with leather craftsman and designer Matthew Demeo of Mateo Mattia. Our cattle are raised in a regenerative grazing system supported by healthy grasslands management. In service of our zero-waste initiatives, our cattle hides are collected to create beautiful leather sourced from this regenerative system. Enjoy a walk through the epic grasslands ecosystem and return to the Lab where Matthew will guide us through techniques and processes to make a simple card pouch out of Stone Barns Center leather. Bring your pieces home with you and enjoy the lasting memory of a design rooted in an ecological culture.
