APPLE LEATHER

A BIO-BASED VEGAN LEATHER
MATERIAL DERIVED FROM
ORGANIC APPLES
GROWN IN THE ITALIAN ALPS

ITALIAN LEATHER IS KNOWN FOR ITS SUPERIOR QUALITY, BUT THIS TIME, IT COMES FROM AN APPLE ORCHARD.

Made from 50% apple peels and 50% polyurethane, apple leather is a byproduct of the apple juice industry. The repurposing of apple skin also keeps them from decomposing and producing methane that contributes to climate change.

Durable, breathable, UV-resistant, and hypoallergenic, this vegan, responsibly produced material is the heart of VEERAH Appeel, the world's first apple leather shoe collection.
