Leather made from recycled apple scraps

Leather made from recycled apple scraps
Material made of 80% bio-based ingredients, with a minimum of 50% upcycled apples. It is characterized by a three-layer structure that can be disassembled at the end of its life. The backing is an organic cotton fabric. The middle layer consists of natural rubber and recycled apple waste discarded in cider and juice production. These are the skins, cores, stems and seeds of apples, which are left over after the fruit is juiced. The coating layer is made half from traditional fossil fuel-derived polyurethane and polyesther, and half bio-plastic. It is used as an alternative to leather of animal origin.
