Produced as an alternative to animal skin, apple skin is a bio-based material made using pulp and peel leftover from the juice and compote industry. Originating from the Bolzano region in northern Italy, this material begins production by pulverizing recycled apple waste.
After processing, they are sent to a factory in Florence, where the cotton-weighted back weaving is made.
The result is a durable yet soft leather material.
One of the most important aspects of using apple waste is that it is a completely renewable resource. Significantly reduces the CO2 impact compared to artificial leather made from 100% fossil fuels. While it is the least harmful material in terms of water and carbon footprint, it does not contain any toxic chemicals and is hypoallergenic.
What makes apple skin even more special is that the renewable resource is also from a natural waste stream. Apple pulp from cider factories is classified as special waste and in most cases ends up in landfills or, in some cases, is incinerated as fuel. We prefer to use this waste, which will be wasted, in our revolutionary products.

Protect your shoes from excess sun or heat, moisture, and harsh cleaning products, including alcohol-based ones. Gently wipe your shoes with a damp cloth, and never wash them in the washing machine.
If you're not wearing a summer collection, do not wear your shoes with bare feet. Always be sure to wear the right socks.
You can use a shoe polish made for animal-based leather. It works on plant-based leather as well.
Avoid getting your shoes extremely wet. If they get wet, avoid exposure to direct sunlight or heat sources like radiators. Let them dry at room temperature without closing them in a box.
When storing your shoes, use a shoe tree or crumpled paper to avoid folding or pressing and to protect the structure.
Over time, cracks and scratches may occur naturally due to use. This happens because of the nature of all materials.
The "one day apart" rule, which is valid for all leather shoes, is also useful for plant-based leather shoes. Wearing your shoes on alternate days will help them last longer and prevent them from smelling.
Thank you for reading and caring about this guide! We can't wait to take the first steps of the revolution together.
