New leather alternatives are popping up every day. However, Polybion has taken vegan leather to the next level! By feeding bacteria different food waste materials, like mango seeds or fruit skins, they can develop a high-quality cultured leather-like material, that is surprisingly similar to the real thing!
As the bacteria feeds off of the fruit waste, it creates a carbon neutral cellulose matrix that resembles leather almost to perfection, that grows 5% faster than leather made from animal skin! More info here!

With the world’s climate crisis, it’s clear that leather alternatives are the future. About 45% of the earth’s surface is currently occupied by the global industrial livestock system, and entire ecosystems are being destroyed in order to fulfill humans’ desire for animal products. Not to mention the amount of toxic chemicals used in the leather tanning process.
