The story behind our name

The Sambar is a majestic deer, listed as a vulnerable species since 2008. Sadly, populations of Sambar Deer have substantially declined and are at risk due to severe hunting and the industrial exploitation of their habitat. Over the past 30 years, populations have declined by more than 50% and are expected to continuously drop until all populations outside of protected areas disappear. Unless action is taken, the Sambar Deer could be narrowed to only a few remote populations.


At Sambar, we are inspired by these majestic animals that are continuously fighting for survival despite habitat loss, hunting and climate change. The Sambar Deer symbolizes our fight against the inhumane treatment of animals and their exploitation for the sake of fashion. We pride ourselves on our commitment to animals and we pledge to never use any animal products such as suede fur or leather.
