Ame, the women's backpack made of Apple Leather (a material made from the leftovers of the apple juice industry: a sustainable, innovative and cruelty free alternative).
This model gathers the best part of a bag in a discrete, refined and beautiful creation. It has a Rectangular base that forms a circle from the medium area zipper (with a wide pocket) and ends on the top side point of the circumference with a square eyelet where both individual straps cross on the back. The upper semicircle is surrounded by a zipper that gives access to the interior, a medium sized space that is padded and has zipper compartments. NAE logo is discreetly engraved on the lower side and on the interior, creating a colour contrast. It has a holder strap and a wide range of accessories in silver for adjustment and holding the straps: D shaped eyelets and hooks with a laser engraved logo, the zipper cursor, the eyelets on the hold strap, and the size adjusting buckles.
Ame is made of hypoallergenic materials and free from environmental toxins. With a water resistant exterior and breathable lining made from GOTS certified organic cotton. All the aesthetic details make this bag very attractive, creating a perfect and functional, elegant backpack.

Apple Leather: Often a waste product from the fruit industry, apple leather is made from peels, cores, pulp, and other leftovers from juicing or apple purees. The high-end leather-like textile is created by dehydrating apple waste and coating it onto a canvas. Often, the resulting material will still include polyurethane, but in smaller quantities compared to traditionally made PU (polyurethane) vegan leathers.
Prominent supplier Frumat offers an apple leather containing 50% apple waste and 50% polyurethane. This results in a material which requires fewer fossil fuels than both animal leather and petroleum-derived faux leathers. At the end of its lifespan, this material can also sometimes be composted.
Sustainably minded brands love apple leather because of its durability and breathability, but also because of how versatile it is – the material can have a grainy texture similar to cow skin, but also be smooth and soft like calf leather. It can be embossed and laser-printed.
