06 Jul You won’t believe it’s not leather! New Vegan Appleskin Leather from Gus* Modern
Have you seen Gus* Modern’s latest Vegan AppleSkinTM Leather? Vegan AppleSkinTM Leather is a new, eco-friendly upholstery material that offers an exciting new option for anyone searching for a quality alternative to leather. Formed by upcycling discarded fruit fiber into a durable covering that retains the classic aesthetic of natural leather, the material is a standout addition to Gus* Modern’s collection of eco-friendly options.
Designed and manufactured in Italy, the material was created to re-purpose the food remnants of the country’s apple orchard and juicing industries, and to answer a global call for an alternative to natural leather. The manufacturing process combines upcycled fruit fiber – apple cores and peels – with polymers to create a biopolymer material that is vegan and OEKO-TEX® Certified. This certification means that the material has been independently tested by OEKO-TEX® and verified to meet their strict standards for health and safety.
Vegan AppleSkinTM Leather retains the look and feel of natural leather, showcasing an attractive interplay of texture, luster and refined comfort. The material is equally durable and easy to clean, resulting in designs that are both stylish and practical. Gus* Modern has introduced Vegan AppleSkinTM Leather in two exclusive colours – Cognac and Licorice – developed in collaboration with the Italian manufacturer to evoke the look and feel of natural leather with a distinctly modern aesthetic. The material is available on select Gus* Modern seating designs, including the popular Mix Modular Collection and Truss Chair, which offer a variety of design possibilities to suit any space.
