We are excited to be finding various opportunities to honor our commitment to sustainability, which we take seriously.
Plant Based Leathers
Plant based leather is an innovative bio-based alternative which is made with waste recovered from the fruit juice industry. This vegan and cruelty -free final material is transformed from recovered waste product, resulting from juicing fruits on an industrialscale and that would otherwise be discarded. This recovery process equates to less usage of virgin materials, and thus fewer natural resources being extracted from the planet, lower emissions and lower energy consumption across the entire supply chain. This attractive, innovative and high -performance material that upcycles waste material has taken its place in our collections as of 2020
BioVerde PU is comprised of 43% organic materials such as sugar cane, hemp, or corn,
17% PU, and recycled bottles. It is OCS certified for the organic content and RCS certificate for the recycled materials used during the production. PU Materials from renewable energy sources
The BioVerde Project involves the use of raw materials, textile support and high-quality polyurethanes, eco-sustainable from renewable sources. Materials to be considered renewable raw materials are those raw materials that due to their intrinsec characteristics regenerate on a “human” time scale, the us of which does not jeopardise the natural resources for the future generations. In addition, the polyurethanes applied in the Biogreen Project are also "No food competition”.
The biobased content of these polyurethanes is very high, which guarantees a lower enviromental footprint compared to traditional polyurethanes obtained through fossil deriving materials.
The apple skin label production starts with drying the apple scraps first. 50% of the apple waste is milled down and then mixed with the 50% of the PU. To provide the required flexibility and durability the material is treated with the necessary wetting and drying methods. And after the embossing process an ecological, recyclable, environment and animal friendly leather is obtained.
Apple PU is a product that is largely organically treated, has a low DMF ratio and it's FDA approved in USA. It not only avoids waste management costs and damage to the environment, but also reduces energy emissions and consumption.
By using apple skin, we show that we are environmentally friendly and serve to the sustainability ideology to be one of the leaders in the industry. We also make the material look more aesthetic by making different finishes on it.
By utilizing the miracle of the olive, we developed our formula. The first step is to ground the olive pomace into a manageable size.
The proprietary formula we created doesn't contain any solvent in order to preserve nature and life. Compared to competing products on the market, more affordable.
Made from recycled materials and plant-based trash. Olive leather itself is recyclable!!!
As robust as natural and synthetic leather. Also possible are the addition of required performance features. A more than six-fold reduction in carbon footprint, and no water use.
All bio-waste is sourced locally. The entire process occurs inside a 100 kilometer radius.
The use of removable buttons for recyclable garments can significantly reduce waste in the fashion industry.
Additionally, the removal of buttons can simplify the recycling process by separating different materials, making it easier to recycle the remaining fabric. This small design change can have a big impact on sustainability efforts in fashion, promoting circularity and reducing the environmental impact of the industry's production and consumption practices.
The traditional metal plating and finishing process is one where water, electricity and chemicals usage is unavoidable and therefore is less-than-desirable for environmental sustainability.
We provide a greener alternative to conventional electroplating metal finishing with our eco-friendly metal finishes.
We produce eco-friendly metal coatings the same beauty as conventional plating but using less water, less energy, and no dangerous chemicals.
WE OFFER MORE THAN 40 METAL FINISHING SHADES FOR OUR CUSTOMERS
The Jacron paper is a sustainably produced sheet of washable kraft paper made with cellulose and rubber polymer. It was designed for manufacturing brand tags for jeans in the 1980s to replace leather jacrons due to this paper's similar durability and water-resistance as well as its being vegan. This sustainable vegan leather alternative is one of our main materials of preference and is heavily used in our collections replacing leather patches. We only use Texon Vogue Jacrons which are mainly produced by recycled & renewable cellulose fibers.
One of the key attributes of Texon Vogue is that it offers a sustainable and animal-friendly alternative to leather. However, it also comes with a considerably smaller carbon footprint.
Jacron is the most widely used sustainable option in the denim industry, which is derived from trees
grown only for paper as a result of a worldwide FSC*® certification.
FSC® certification ensures that
products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic
The FSC® Principles and Criteria provide a foundation for all forest management standards
globally so you can buy forest products with confidence that you are helping to ensure our forests are alive for generations to come.
Total chrome-free leather patches are produced from leather hides which are tanned without chromium and by mainly vegetable sourced materials.
In order to make leather from a hide, the hide needs to be processed with chemicals. A part of the leather making process is leather tanning. About 75% of leather made today is chrome-tanned. However, chromium is not the best option considering the waste streams and strain it puts on the environment.
Leather can be a circular and biodegradable material when using the right chemicals.
That is why the main benefit of chrome free vegetable tanning is for the environment.
Chrome free leather means less pollution, cleaner waste streams and improved biodegradability. It creates a more circular solution for the waste of the meat industry. It is therefore the logic choice to make for your leather textile accessories.
The best substitute for natural leather has come to equal many of its characteristics, but at a lower cost and in respect of the environment, as it is produced by recycled leather scraps, leather dust and natural binders. Overall composition consists of %98 natural components.
