For the production of the "wine leather", a process for upgrading wine waste was developed in cooperation with Italian wineries: grape marc, which is composed of grape skins, stems, and seeds that are discarded during wine production. No toxic solvents, heavy metals, or substances hazardous to humans or the environment are used in the production process.
BOHEMA creates contemporary designs in timeless editions, dressed in innovative plant materials. They create for everyone who likes to express their own style, whilst appreciating the quality of craftsmanship. BOHEMA does everything with care for the environment and animals. The goal is to offer cruelty-free, sustainable alternatives, without toxic chemicals, phthalates and PVC.
All components are 100% vegan. Shoes are hand made in Poland.
Grape Leather: Grape leather is created using waste from wine-making – Italian company Vegea worked to solve a food-waste problem in Italy's wine industry by taking leftover grapes and using them to craft a high-quality leather-like material.
Every 10 litres of wine can produce 2.5 litres of waste such as shells, skins and cores, which are usually discarded. Vegea (the name is a combination of “vegan” and “gea”, meaning Earth) has won a H&M Global Change Award and been used in H&M's Conscious Exclusive Collection, as well as for interiors in Bentley's electric cars.
The leather is made by dehydrating the grape residue and combining it with vegetable oil and water-based polyurethane. It is then coated with organic cotton. Vegea re-uses any water used in its production process, and the final material contains only minimal amounts of non-toxic chemical reagents.
