This might just be our favorite part. Here’s what makes Technik-Leather so unique:

  1. We use a proprietary additive that makes the material biodegradable in a landfill. Microorganisms find it utterly delicious.
  2. Our plant-based topcoat (called Liquidplant) helps the material last—plus resist stains, scratches and water.
  3. This microfiber layer is made of recycled plastic water bottles. It mimics the feel of animal leather but causes zero harm.
