Apple leather

Apple leather is an organic-based material produced from apple by-products from the juice industry. When apples are pressed to create juice, we are left with apple pomace and peels. These by-products contain plenty of cellulose, which is perfect to produce new fabrics! To achieve this, the ointment is reduced to a powder, and once processed, it is combined with a synthetic material, polyurethane. The final result is what we call apple leather. Apple leather is soft and durable, and has a much weaker environmental impact than cow leather. It is often used to produce shoes and small accessories like wallets or handbags. Allégorie, Oliver CoVeerah and Samara are a few brands using apple leather to design beautiful, sustainable products.
