PRODUCTION FLOW OF RECYCLED LEATHER

A SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE TO
REGULAR LEATHER

Unique Recycled Leather is obtained from industrial glove off-cuts, material that would ordinarily go to waste. 80% of our source material is animal leather, with the other 20% comprised of a mixture of vegetable & synthetic products. As innovatively sourced, waste-reducing material, it offers limitless potential with applications in fashion accessories, home decor and stationary. It is 100% safe to use. All our products are subject to rigorous SGS certification and contain no harmful substances.
