PersiSkin is an alternative to animal or synthetic leather is plant-based, made of persimmon waste.

In 2020, the Valencian Community has produced 88.5% of the persimmon harvest of all of Spain. In the last 6 years, Spain has gone from producing over 300 million kilos of persimmon to almost 500 million kilos, becoming the main exporting country in the world. It is estimated that more than 50% of the persimmon crop was wasted each season. PersiSkin created a new textile that uses this waste and can be produced commercially. The material can be embossed or printed.

The production process is closed loop: the company uses the remains and surpluses of the persimmon harvest to create the final product.
