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 Northern Italy.
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.
REDUCE greenhouse gas and environmental impact.
REUSE apple peels, which would have been wasted.
RECYCLE water & non-toxic chemicals.
