Vegan leathers from waste apples for a clean future.
Apple leather, also known as AppleSkin, is a bio-based material made using the leftover pomace and peel from the fruit juice and compote industry.
Apple leather is a vegan leather with innovative and environmentally friendly substitute for animal leather.
Using the waste of apples used in the juice and applesauce industry, we are able to produce a very innovative and unusual type of leather. By using waste, we not only have to plant or harvest apples for our crops, but also create an opportunity for farmers to generate a second income from their waste, thereby protecting ecosystems and increasing sustainability.
First, the waste product consisting of the peel, body and fibers of the apple is obtained and the drying process is carried out.The dried product is mixed with polyurethane and laminated on recycled cotton and polyester fabric. Production is carried out according to the density and thickness of the final product.
It can create different structures, colors and feelings to mimic apple skin and animal skins such as snakes and crocodiles. The best thing about apple skin is that it can produce a quality handbag or countless other products with the look and feel of snakeskin, without harming animals or having a negative impact on any aspect of our environment.
Apple leather is being used to produce shoes, bags, belts, furniture, clothes, labels and accesories.
