Apple faux leather
By recycling industrial waste from apple processing it is possible to create a material which is a 75% natural ‘leather’. The main advantages of apple leather are its porosity and the fact that it cuts down waste disposal costs in apple processing. In addition to apple leather having increased material breathability, without modifying its thermosensitivity, the high percentage of organic and natural material in it makes the product eco-friendly, non-toxic and bio-compatible. Apple skin is used to produce leather-like fashion accessories, clothes, furniture (sofas and armchairs) and many other everyday products. This material can be used by vegans as a substitute to animal leather.
