A BIO-BASED VEGAN LEATHER
MATERIAL DERIVED FROM
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.
Apples are harvested from
an orchard in Bolzano, a
valley nestled among hills
and vineyards set in the
After juicing, the
peels are rescued for
a higher purpose.
The apple peels
are ground into
a fine powder.
The powder is mixed with harmless, non-toxic, organic pigment and transforms into bio-based leather. The apple leather makes up the uppers of every piece in the VEERAH APPEEL collection.
REUSE apple peels, which would have been wasted.
REDUCE greenhouse gas and environmental impact.
RECYCLE water & non-toxic chemicals.
