VEGAN since our creation in 2011,we are always looking into improving and bringing more and more sustainability in our products.
We are searching for new materials and are heading towards being 100% Recyclable in 2021. Our effort to use strong, sustainable, eco-friendly materials is our “number one focus”
We introduced a ZERO CO2 emission vegan leather in our FW18-19 collection, it is made from Polymers deriving from natural renewable sources. Cereals and vegetable seeds coming from NO FOOD agriculture. Made in Italy.
For our FW2020 collection we will introduce and Award winning Vegan leather made from APPLE SKIN who is another leather alternative made from fruit, more specifically from the skin and core waste recovered from the food industry.
