Enviro Hide is a fully circular material made from recycled leather products and offcuts
Enviro Hide is made using a process that uses 90% less water than traditional leather production. It also eliminates harmful waste from the manufacturing process and the necessity to use toxic chemicals, which are harmful for us and the environment
Enviro Hide is environmentally friendly and sustainable because it's made from recycled leather products, uses 90% less water in its production process compared to traditional leather, and eliminates harmful waste from the manufacturing process. More importantly, it's a fully recycled material that can be used again and again.
Enviro Hide contributes to a circular economy by being made from recycled leather products and offcuts. Unlike traditional leather production, which often follows a linear economy model (produce, use, dispose), Enviro Hide's process is circular, meaning the material can be used, recycled, and then used again, reducing landfill waste.
Enviro Hide has multiple applications and can be used across several manufacturing industry groups. These include the automobile industry, transport, aviation, government procurement, commercial office and building fit-outs, and the footwear and clothing industries. It can be used for automotive and aviation seats, residential and commercial interior design projects, and more.
Enviro Hide is 20% stronger than split leather. It's durable, lightweight, and long-lasting. It doesn't require cleaning with a detergent-based cleaner, making it low maintenance
Enviro Hide looks, feels, and performs like genuine leather. It's soft to the touch and can be made in any length and any colour.
