Recyc Leather Innovative Material - Turning leather off-cuts destined to landfills into new high-quality material

Leather processing involves highly polluting processes (tanning is very water and chemical-intensive) while producing a significant amount of waste scraps (about 1 million tonnes going to landfill each year). Recyc Leather is an innovative material produced through an intelligent recycling process of leather scraps from different products, such as garden gloves. Recyc Leather aims to use leather waste to give it a second life and avoid landfill. With a growing demand for ethical, eco-friendly and recycled products, Recyc Leather manufactures both recycled leather and finished products, offering an environmentally friendly alternative to virgin leather. Recyc Leather's products are lighter and have exceptional strength while retaining their original look and feel.
