To make AppleSkin®, we discovered innovative ways to utilize infinitely renewable resources with the goal of low environmental impact.

 

Through our own patented technology, we provide sustainable alternative and green solution to traditional animal leathers and fully-synthetics artificial leathers.

 

It continues to evolve so that it can be applied to more industries.

SUSTAINABILITY OF APPLESKIN

VEGATEX AppleSkin utilizes apple pomace, an industrial waste, so it does not require more resources such as land, water, or fossil fuels to produce new raw materials.

 

It is based on upcycling, which discovers new value in discarded waste and recycles it into high value-added textile to achieve zero waste.

This reduces carbon dioxide emissions from cradle to grave.


It is 100% vegan, certified as 66% bio-based by USDA, and does not emit harmful chemicals, making it safe for all living things.

HOW APPLESKIN IS MADE

By repurposing waste by-products that would normally end up in landfill after beverage production, we use innovative technology to transform them into nano-sized powder and mix them into the water-based polyurethane.

Other plant-based fibers (Lyocell) or fibers derived from recycled plastic bottles (RPET) are coated with a mixture of water-based polyurethane and waste.

Color and texture are added to complete Vegatex AppleSkin. It is being used in various industries such as fashion accessories and interior design.

At the end of its lifespan, it returns to nature.
