LOW IMPACT APPLE LEATHER

Material information
Pellemela is a leather substitute made of 50% recycled apple fibre and 50% polyurethane. It was developed by Italian company Frumat that observed that every year the Tyrol region, one of the worlds largest apple-producing regions, is faced with significant amount of food-production waste. To reinvest this waste in an additional economic production, the company developed a new raw material.

This sustainable material is compostable, cruelty-free and recyclable.

This material was sourced on the 7th Future Fabrics Expo, organised by The Sustainable Angle.
