We’re von Holzhausen, a team of material innovators on a mission to replace animal leather with a scientific, optimistic approach. Why?
Leather tanning destroys land and waterways plus pollutes the air with toxic chemicals, including some known carcinogens.*
Astonishing as it sounds, livestock production causes as much greenhouse gas emissions than planes, trains and cars combined.+
On the bright side, we can lighten our carbon footprint by using smart, safe materials that make innovative use of existing resources.
