Recycled Leather that Respects the Environment
Sustainability is at the core of what we do responsibly turing something that would otherwise be wasted into something that’s truly wanted. Up to 75% of traditional leather is unused and often destined for landfill.
Our patented clean technology manufacturing process combines traditional leather fibres without the use of unfriendly adhesives that can be harmful the environment. Furthermore, the process recycles 95% of the process water, and the waste streams are converted into energy wich is fed back into the process.
We recovered the leather that would be lost in the production process to create a material 40% lighter and five times more resistant to abrasion than full grain leather.
The process reduces water usage by 90% and the enviromental impact compared to traditional leather production, with an 80% lower carbon footprint.
