No Animals, No Plastic, No Problem
Around 80% of leather worldwide is tanned using chrome, a highly toxic process that results in significant toxic waste. To grow our TransLeather™, we use plant waste and feed it to a set of microbes that weave our material in a matter of days.
Producing leather from animals cause environmental impacts such as deforestation, water and land overuse, and gas emissions. Transleather™ production eliminate greenhouse gases (even 150kg of CO2 per 1m² of product), It grows faster on less land and we do it with the most abundant resource- organic waste.
Transleather™ is based on cellulose-its nanostructure makes this material strong, durable, and easily adaptable in properties. We can finish it with color and texture to look good as shoes, bags, car seats, or as your phone cover.
