We transform biological residuals from the production of apple juice into new raw material that gets developed into apple skin for our shoes. This allows us to retrieve by-product that would have been otherwise destroyed with all annexed costs and damages to the environment.
While most raw materials for leather alternatives are made with PVC (polyvinyl chloride), we use PU (polyurethane), which is more sustainable. PU is less harmful on the environment than PVC. Regarding the color, we do not tan the material nor dye it. The color is derived from pigments mostly coming from minerals in water dispersion process.
Made In A Renewable Solar Energy Facility
Solar power is a free source of energy that is sustainable and totally inexhaustible, unlike fossil fuels. Our facility does not emit greenhouse emissions while producing electricity.
Italian Excellence And Know-How
Apple skin was first developed over 10 years ago in Italy and tested thoroughly with pasta making machines to create a dough-like substance that was later developed into this industrial raw material.
Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Union regulation that addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment
