ELeather is the high-performance sustainable leather for automotive interiors that meets and exceeds industry standards. Our innovative technology allows for a significantly lower environmental footprint and optimised production process without compromising material quality, and retaining the look and feel of traditional leather.

With an established position in numerous high-demanding markets, ELeather has a wealth of knowledge and a proven track record of supplying materials at scale to leading global brands and supporting them in their carbon reduction goals.

THE sustainable leather

For some, the beauty of leather lies in the uniqueness of each hide. Sadly, the same inconsistency is the reason why for every tonne of leather, up to three quarters is destined for landfill.

We have turned that waste into a source of performance fibre, saving huge amounts each year. Not only that, the production of ELeather saves more than 60% CO2 and more than 55% natural resources, such as water and land.

Sustainability is in our DNA – we create what the people want and the planet deserves.

Lighter weight for increased range

Increasingly stringent emissions targets require OEMs to find innovative solutions, looking beyond the structural components, in order to reduce the weight of their vehicles.

A simple swap from traditional leather to much lighter ELeather will result in as much as 2kg less per car meaning fewer CO2 emissions in use.

This will also allow the vehicle owner to save on fuel and enjoy the open road for longer in-between charges.

Quality interior that lasts

We understand that the interior of a vehicle is a continuation of what the exterior promises and needs to create the wow factor throughout the entire lifetime of a car. Our premium quality material can deliver on that promise as it retains the fresh out-of-factory look and feel for years to come.

Improved production efficiency

Being a homogenous material, ELeather can simplify and even eliminate some of the steps required in the production of a leather seat cover.

The material is manufactured on a roll meaning no hide inspection requirement with greatly reduced cutting and yield loss. It can be stack-cut providing additional time savings in production.

Our material will help you save resources and express the individual character of each car model that your customers will cherish for years to come.

Better than leather

Leather has been the luxury material of choice thanks to its suppleness and uniqueness – favoured by designers and loved by consumers. Recently, however, the public has become increasingly aware and vocal about its environmental cost that can no longer be overlooked.

Now, there is a material that is able to provide the luxuriousness of leather without its environmental pitfalls. A material that is not only easier to work with but also easier to look after and longer-lasting.

It’s a win-win-win all round.
