Apple leather is a bio-based material made using the leftover pomace and peelfrom the fruit juice and compote industry. Originating from the region of Bolzano in northern Italy, the fabric is created by first taking the recovered apple waste and reducing it to a powder. Once processed, it is sent to a factory located in Florence, where it is combined with polyurethane and coated onto a cotton and polyester canvas

The apple leather used in our products is made using 50% apple waste mixed with 50% PU, coated onto a cotton/polyester canvas. The result is a durable but soft fabric that is perfect for hardwearing small accessories. One of the most important aspects of using the apple waste is  that it is a completely renewable resource. This reduces the CO2 impact significantly compared to faux leather made from 100% fossil fuels.

Beautiful fashion doesn’t have to come at the cost of the environment. The goal is to ensure that we’re always relentless in the search for the most sustainable, revolutionary materials. SAMARA works with a small factory in Europe that creates apple leather. Apple leather is a combination of apple skins that are the by-products of the juicing industry, as well as PU, which acts as a binding agent.

Not only waste management costs and associated damage to the environment have been avoided, this natural waste reduces energy emission and consumption throughout the entire production chain and replaces other raw materials that are heavy on chemical resources in the product.
