About Apple Leather
Yes, Apple Leather is made from real apples! This vegan leather-alternative is made from apple skins and cores salvaged from the apple juice industry's waste pile. Cellulose is derived from the apples and turned into an incredibly versatile material that can be manipulated into different textures and densities.
All Apple Leather is made from Italian grown apples at the FRUMAT factory in Bolzano, Italy.
