Durable, high-quality, recycled leather that is used to create 3D decorative and functional consumer products with low environmental impact. It is made as a layered structure of a fiber or paper backer, a pulp made from shredded leather, and a polyurethane coating which is embossed with a leather-like texture. During this process, surplus trimmings and shavings are recovered, ground, and mixed with a natural binder, and then uniformly colored using a special technique. The resulting eco-friendly material is formed into various 3D objects using simple, low-cost fabrication methods such as die cutting, riveting and stitching for high end lifestyle products with custom designs and long-lasting colors. The material exhibits uniform surface, excellent skipping and cutting, and glueing and sewing characteristics and break resistance. The manufacturer has collaborated with renowned designers around the world to create new product lines for diverse markets. ‘Zambo’ collection designed by Cristian Mohaded, exploits plasticity of this material with smooth soft finish to create unique interconnected 3D structures without any stitching or gluing. This intuitive morphology highlights the overlapping layers that twist and spindle around the center, resulting in clean lines and homogenous shapes. ‘Amigos’ collection features 8 different 3D intricate objects with smooth curves inspired by animals that are simply held together with minimal (1-2) stitches or rivets. The material comes in 0.08-1.2 mm (3.15 to 47.24 mil) thick sheets with an option to vary the thickness. It is possible to create custom shapes, colors and finishes (to make the surface stain resistant and food safe are under development, as well as different gloss levels and embossings) and laminate the recycled leather with different materials depending on the application. Applications are for home décor such as plates, bowls, containers, toys, tablemats, boxes, baskets, bags, lamp shades, flower vase, insoles, belts, notebooks and accessories.
