By removing these invasive predators, we are enabling the ecosystems to rehabilitate. For example, each invasive Lionfish can eat up to 70,000 native reef fish in its lifetime. So each fish we remove can protect up to 70,000 native reef fish. This allows the reefs to rebuild from the destruction caused. Check out our products page to learn more about our direct impact.

INVERSA only works to remove highly damaging invasive species populations that were human-introduced. As a result of human error, these species were introduced to ecosystems and over the years these species have caused irreversible damage. Biologists and international organizations focused on preserving biodiversity, such as COP15, have advocated for the removal of these destructive species in order to preserve native biodiversity and ecosystems. INVERSA is provided a way for consumers to get engaged in the process by producing fashion-grade Invasive™ Leathers.
We carefully vet all our partners and suppliers to ensure an ethical and end-to-end healing supply chain. We process and manufacture all our products in the USA. Please contact us for specific details.
We are happy to say that we do not use the toxic Chrome VI. Instead, today, like 75%+ of leather in fashion today, we use Chrome III in our tanning process. However, we believe in pushing the boundaries of eco-sensitivity and within 24 months, we will be shifting to bio-based tanning via Zeolite.
You can expect to get your samples within 1-2 weeks. For full scale orders, we will create a production timeline as part of our proposal because it will depend on the size of the order and any custom color development needed.
We have a set of 2 finishes and 5 stock colors per finish for each invasive leather offering. We are able to make any custom color you would like to see as well. Please contact us for details.
