Vegan materials from VEGANSHOES-IT - AppleSkin


Embracing sustainability, our cutting-edge material, AppleSkin, is crafted from processing waste generated by plant-based products. This revolutionary biomaterial emerged from the dedicated efforts of Frumat Leather, a Bolzano-based company, conducting extensive research. The innovation involves incorporating eco-friendly elements derived from the byproducts of plant-based processing, with a particular focus on organic apples from Alto Adige.


AppleSkin is ingeniously composed of 50% discarded apple peels and cores from industrial processing, meticulously dried and finely ground into powder. This powder is skillfully blended with 50% polyurethane (PU) and applied to a tear-resistant roll, reinforced with cotton fabric. Through a heating process, these rolls transform into robust, weather-resistant fabric, embodying the qualities of plant-based leather. This versatile material finds applications in various domains, from furniture to fashion, and from shoes to bags. As a fruit-based vegan leather, it stands as a testament to innovation, conserving resources and minimizing chemical usage, thereby significantly reducing environmental impact compared to traditional leather. This circular economy initiative exemplifies collaborative efforts and biomass recovery, fostering sustainability and the creation of increasingly eco-conscious products.
