Innovative Materials

Regenerative Leather

Regenerative Leather is derived from the regenerative agriculture movement. Farmers and ranchers are increasingly adopting new land-management practices aimed at improving the quality of their soil and above-ground biodiversity. Altering traditional agricultural grazing methods, combined with reducing land tillage can have a profound impact on climate change and the environment. One of the key benefits of supporting this practice is that the soil has a unique ability to store more carbon than is released.

MIRUM

MIRUM is made with natural, biodegradable polymers. Their finished materials are never coated in polyurethane and use no synthetic binders. MIRUM stands for 100% natural inputs and zero use of plastic.

Pinatex (recycled pineapple)

In the Philippines, farmers on pineapple plantations collect fallen pineapple leaves. The leaves are processed to extract the fibres which are manufactured into a non-woven substrate. The substrate is then sent to Spain where the finished product is created.
