An alternative to animal leather for Stella McCartney’s handbags

It is called tote micro Falabella and it is the new bag collection that Stella McCartney has created with a circular economy approach.
The material used for the product is an alternative to animal leather of vegetable origin and is composed of natural latex and filler fibers made from recycled coconut and rice husk from agricultural waste. These ingredients are heated and pressed onto a cotton fabric backing, without the use of glues, and at the end of its life the material can be either returned to the production process or recycled. The chain in the bag is silver-plated recycled brass, and GOTS-certified organic cotton with corn starch wax coating was used for the lacing.
The trim is 70% solvent-free polyurethane and 30% post-consumer recycled polyester.
The lining is GRS-certified post-consumer recycled polyester.
