Saya, the rectangular handbag with two types of straps, made of Apple Leather: a material derived from the leftovers of the apple juice industry: a sustainable, innovative and cruelty free alternative.

As the name says, it is a tote bag (because it is completely functional) with a refined and elegant aesthetic with a colour contrast in black and beige. Its medium rectangular shape has different compartments where you can organise and keep all your belongings. And, in case you don't want to hold it by hand, you can use a shoulder strap that is easily removable and stored. In the interior you can find two wide compartments with a zipper that unfolds into a zipper pocket and another file holder pocket. Both of them meet in the middle on a medium zipper pocket. Apart from its attractive shape, it has various beautiful details: the white logo discreetly placed on the lower side of the beige section, an interior tag and a wide range of silver metal accessories, including square eyelets and laser engraved hooks, the zippers and eyelets on the upper strap.

The Saya handbag is made of hypoallergenic materials and free from environmental toxins. With a water resistant exterior, nickel free metal and breathable lining made from GOTS certified organic cotton.

Carefully made in Spain with sustainable materials and manufacturing process in a fair work environment.

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 highend leatherlike 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 petroleumderived 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 laserprinted.
