ABOUT THE FOUNDER

The Recyc LeatherTM story began 10 years ago when founder Aron Yu, working with brands for bookbinding designs, kept looking for sustainable materials in his printer factory. He saw an opportunity: recycled leather was only used as a reinforcing material in shoe soles, furniture trim and the middle layer of belts. It was a product that had limited applications due to being brittle. Aron’s 10 years of experience in design and manufacturing of leather products allowed him to formulate a greatly improved recycled leather product that was stronger and softer.

 

For the past seven years Aron Yu has been designing and manufacturing finished recycled leather products for his own UK brand Paperthinks. Through continuous innovation, testing and improvement, Aron is now ready to showcase his products to other brands and companies. In 2016 he created Recyc Leather TM. Previously it was not common to label products as “recycled leather”, however now it is acceptable to do so given the smart recycling system and certified recycling process. More and more people are ready to use recycled material products. Aron is now looking forward to expanding his production lines and working with companies across different industries.
