Collection: Apple Leather Created from Apple Waste

Apple Skin

Originating from the region of Bolzano in northern Italy, the fabric is created from apple waste and is a perfect example of recycling fruit waste. Apple Leather, an OEKO-TEX certified material, is a very innovative and exceptional leather type that is created by the waste of apples that are used in the juice and applesauce industry. Developing this vegan leather material through the usage of the waste, no apples have to be planted or harvested just for this plant based vegan leather. In fact, it creates an opportunity for the farmers to get a second income through their waste and it is a way to protect ecosystems.

The process starts by taking the waste product which consists of the skin, stem and fibers of the apples and dry them. The dried product is then pulverized and mixed with a biodegradable plastic substitute made of milk protein. Feels exactly like leather, it comprises of up to 50% bio based content and is absolutely vegan and animal free. 

PETA Approved 

One of the most important aspects of using the apple waste is that it is a completely renewable resource. This reduces the CO2 impact significantly compared to faux leather made from 100% fossil fuels.This is the reason that this PETA Approved innovative material is one of the most sustainable and environment friendly substitute to animal leather and is a perfect example of recycling waste into a sustainable and eco-friendly luxury.
