For nowadays, most of artificial leathers have caused serious pollution problems. For example, PU leather results to water pollution and PVC is cause of Dioxin. The material of Sustainable Plant-based Leather is natural rubber which is extracted from natural saps of rubber trees. Besides, in manufacturing process, we use patent technology of non-glue adhesive and adopt food grade addictives to replace chemicals. Therefore material and process are proved to be safe in terms of human body or natural environment. Furthermore, products made from Sustainable Plant-based Leather is biodegradable which helps to minimize impact to ecology.

Besides keeping same appearance and touching, Sustainable Plant-based Leather offers various patterns/texture, and it also provides soft-touching, fancy quality and most importantly superior non-slip surface. Because of the simple process, easycutting, low cost, light, waterproof, and cold/heat resistant, Sustainable Plant-based Leather could be applied to apparels, gloves, shoes, furniture, bag, and other industry assemblies.
