Late Stage Startup





Tagline

E- Leather - the Eco-friendly material developer



Elevator Pitch

E-Leather® is a unique material produced using waste leather to create a sustainable, high performance material that delivers the look and feel of traditional leather plus significant economic, hygienic and durability benefits.

There has been rapid adoption in aviation, transport, and upholstery markets. Other major sectors are in development and provide the basis for additional rapid growth. In many applications the cost of installing E-Leather is repaid within 12 to 18 months in fuel and lifetime savings.

The E-Leather upcycling process appeals to major brands who are prioritizing sustainability and also wish to deliver product enhancement and improve their margin performance.

Product

The product is 40% lighter than traditional leather. The controlled stretch that retains shape in service, makes it the ideal solution for seating, furniture, cladding panels and leather products.

Many options exist that enable the technical performance of the product to be engineered to meet specific requirements including fire performance, wear properties as well as appearance and feel.

Colours and textures can be customized to match brand design themes.



Why we are ecofriendly

We upgrade discarded leather in a patented process, which interlinks leather fibres without the use of adhesives.

But that is not all, the manufacturing process uses state of the art techniques which recycle 95% of the process water. We convert waste streams into energy, which is fed back into the process. E-Leather is a clean technology product which is produced using sustainable natural leather fibres.
