Waste made
beautiful

Leap™ is upcycled apple waste turned into a truly sustainable plant-based leather alternative.

Why use cows when you can use apples?

It's easier to use leftover apples

Leap™ is a plant-based leather alternative with every quality of traditional leather but more beautiful.
Born by upcycling apple waste discarded in cider production, Leap™ naturally saves time, energy and resources.

Our roadmap will show how we see a future made of food waste.

Today Leap™ uses 80% bio-based ingredients, tomorrow we're working towards 100%, because the future of leather is plant-based.

Low value pulp

High value material

A new way to touch beauty

Leap™ feels strong and alive - a soft, luxurious material with a familiar feeling. The surface can be smooth or textured.

Experience a supple handle you’d expect from leather, made from apple.

Discover the future
of leather

We stay authentic to our raw material by refusing to add anything that’s not necessary. The coating layer is the only part of Leap that contains a small amount of fossil fuel-derived ingredients, because it’s necessary to find a balance between performance and sustainability.

Our roadmap leads us to a 100% natural and waste-based composition in the future.
