The ECO Apple Skin is produced in Italy using waste from the apple juice Industry. Every year, manufacturers of apple products (like apple juice & jam) are faced with a significant amount of waste. That waste (consiting of apple peels and cores) is developped into a new raw material, an ecological alternative to leather. The result? A cellulose-based material with at least 50% of recycled apple fiber. A versatile, durable, bio-based and high-quality alternative to animal skin with a low environmental impact.
All the stuff that’s left behind when producing apple juice is what we call: the good stuff, because we can use it to make a pair of fancy APLs sneakers! Isn’t that crazy?
