WoW! These stylish products have a leather look, but are actually made of apples. Besides the fact that this is an animal and environmentally friendly material, something is also done against food waste.
The Leather like material of our apple leather is made from the waste of the apple juice industry. To make 1 liter of apple juice you need 1.4KG apples. The peel, the core and the dried pulp is what remains after pressing the apples. The fibers of apple scraps are transformed into a high quality material that possesses the same texture and characteristics of leather.
By using this “waste” , grind it and ultimately use it to produce the apple leather we minimise waste-managing costs but also minimise harm to the environment. Besides that the apple material is used as a replacement for different raw materials that require a chemical production. Because of this the emissions in the entire production chain are decreased.
Designed and manufactured with love in The Netherlands.
