PETA-approved, vegan and cruelty-free.

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.
