CABBTEX VEGAN LEATHER
- story by LUCKYNELLY – BERLIN
Berlin based designer Christine Rochlitz and founder of the vegan and sustainable luxury designer handbags and accessories brand LUCKYNELLY – BERLIN, has developed an innovative vegan material made from cabbage, which offers a new alternative to (exotic) leathers.
CABBTEX (cabbage/textile) is a vegan and sustainable material made from cabbage leaves.
Cabbage leaves have been dried and refined with various water-based liquids, making them flexible, sewable and durable. CABBTEX is 100% organic and sustainable. In many supermarkets, there are often “scraps” laid out to take home, like the outer leaves of various types of cabbage, and even when preparing cabbage dishes, these leaves are usually removed because they are dry or not as beautiful.
Cabbage looks very special by itself with its special structure and thick veins in the leaves. Refined, dyed and preserved, these leaves are converted into unique beautiful handbags, accessories and jewelry.
Handmade in Berlin. Open for collaboration.
