City Vegan Apple Skin Leather Briefcase | Silver By ASHOKA Paris

Ships from France | Made in EU | No import duties for UK, EU or USA

The City Apple Skin red briefcase is part of the Kromatik line, a colorful collection that offers everyday essentials.

As with all ranges, Ashoka has taken particular care of every detail to create a unique, high-quality bag.

The City is made of Apple Skin, a bio-sourced material made from apple waste from the food industry. 

The Kromatik briefcase displays impeccable, refined, and elegant lines.

Ultra practical with its removable adjustable shoulder strap and its pretty handles which give it a pleasant grip, it can be carried easily by hand or on the shoulder. 
The City Kromatik has a central gusset and 2 inside pockets, one zipped and the other can accommodate a 15-inch computer.

Its modern and slender look subtly distinguishes it from a simple briefcase.

Its soft and rounded curves, its slightly arched shape, its triangle inserts, and its lower pad, make it a solid, functional, and yet somewhat airy bag.

Its signature, the faceted Fox puller, is a tailor-made creation for this unique collection.


38cm x 29cm x 8cm


  • Closure: single-slider zip, faceted fox puller, shiny nickel finish
  • Shoulder strap: red nylon strap, removable and adjustable (68 to  135 cm) 
  • A pocket for a 15-inch computer and a zipped pocket 

All ASHOKA bags and accessories are 100% vegan. They are made from eco-responsible materials and have received the Peta Approved Vegan and Animal Free label.

Outer materials: Apple Skin (faux leather) made in Florence, Italy.

Inner lining: made of PET (plastic from recycled bottles).

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.
