A circular leather composite made up entirely of waste found in the leather industry. Transforming soft skins into a hard building material that can be pressed into any shape, and retains leather’s charming material qualities. Making it ideal for interior and furniture applications.

Containing only two natural ingredients, the leather composite is crafted from rawhide waste found in the tanning industry and leather cut offs from the industrial production of leather furniture. A unique combination that means it can be recycled in a loop, and allows for control over products’ entire lifecycle.
