Apple Leather

Our ethos is to take care of the earth as it takes care of us. We don’t believe in compromising our planet for the sake of fashion. In doing so, we exclusively use apple leather in all of our bags due the tremendous environmental benefits.

Learn how we're creating a better world, one apple at a time.

Truly Sustainable Products

We do not use the word sustainable lightly. Unlike many other brands we exclusively use materials and processes that are ethical, environmentally friendly, and cruelty free. Our purpose has always been to create products that challenged the status quo, that we know is making a positive impact for both the environment and every being that inhabits it.

We are dedicated to pioneering a modern identity for luxury goods through the reinvention of traditional fabric sourcing.   


What is Apple Leather?

Our partners have spent many years researching solutions for sustainable, eco-friendly and cruelty free leather options. The result is an innovative and bio-engineered leather from organic industrial apple waste.

This revolutionary apple leather is farmed from apples and transformed into a durable apple leather fabric in northern Italy.

How is Apple Leather Made?

Apple leather begins as a raw material deriving from organic apple waste. Food waste is generally put in landfill or burnt to ashes. 

The organic apple waste such as pulp and other remnants are dried and ground into a powder form. The waste is laid out and sealed with a resin, transforming into a durable vegan leather.

By using apple waste in our leather, we are ensuring that this waste remains in the production cycle as a valuable resource while dramatically reducing our environmental pollution.

Life Cycle Assessment

A widespread misconception about apple leather is its comparison to other vegan alternatives like synthetic leather. Apple leather, sourced from waste materials, offers a sophisticated and eco-friendly alternative to synthetic options.

A study by the University of Milan found that apple leather outperforms synthetic leather in all 17 environmental impact categories, highlighting its significant environmental benefits and superior advantage. Notable findings from the study include:


Reduction in global warming contribution.


Reduction in ionized radiation exposure.


Reduction in terrestrial ecotoxicology. This measures how environmental pollutants affect land-dependent organisms.
