Recycled聽 Leather

Introduction:

It is made from discarded “wet blue” leather off-cuts that normally end up in the landfill. What`s聽 more ,we will recycle plastic bottles to get the synthetic fibers.It`s unique patented process employs high pressure water jets to force the recycled leather fibers through an integral textile made from plastic bottles reinforcement core in a continuous closed-looped system with 99% of water recycled.It is a clean groundbreaking technology product that lowering carbon emissions 60%,saving 95% scarce water resources compared with traditional leather production.

How it`s made ?

Step 1:聽聽The Base materials of ELFA leather is leather shavings and trimmings.

Step 2: 聽Leather shavings and trimmings undergo a fiberisation聽process which shreds聽and upgrades them into fine usable fibres .

Step 3:聽聽Leather fibers are formed into two layers on both sides of a micro textile core.They are fastened with high pressure water jets rather than chemical adhesives.

Step 4锛毬燗fter color impergnation ,a pu finish coats the leather and a release paper template gives the surface a leather effect grain.

Step 5: 聽After final inspection and quality assurance it is ready to be rolled . On a roll聽the leather is more functional to use and will produce less cuttings and wastages聽in the further use .

Recycled Leather聽Alternative聽To聽Traditional聽Leather

Traditional leather is being rivalled by manmade alternatives. The latest in this new聽generation is聽recycled leather.

Made from discarded ‘wet blue’ leather off-cuts that normally end up in landfill, recycled聽leather saves needless waste. Plus it鈥檚 available to cut from the roll. So Unlike聽leather hides there鈥檚 minimal wastage and, of course, lower material costs. Not all recycled聽leathers are the same…

Recycled聽leather comes in numerous forms. Most rely on adhesives and resins to bond the leather fibres together to form the material. However, recycled leather from ELFA聽leather聽is different. The ELFA聽leather聽patented process uses no chemicals and resins聽whatsoever but just water alone. With its strong eco credentials, high performance and low cutting wastage,聽recycled leather from ELFA聽leather enterprise聽is fast becoming the material of choice for the footwear, leather goods, upholstery and transport sectors.

Why use聽recycled leather as an alternative to traditional leather?

Recycled聽leather has all the natural benefits of traditional leather plus it is more eco-friendly, saves wastage, is lighter (for less fuel consumption), more durable, both cheaper and easier to keep clean and can be relied on for consistency of colour and texture. For Example as below :

LEATHER HIDES

1 tonne of leather….

….generates only about 聽255kg of finished, tanned leather…

…the remainder….戮 of the tonne is waste.

It takes approximately 4 leather hides to furnish the interior of 1 car

RECYCLED聽LEATHER

Trimmings and shavings (the raw material of composition leather) accounts for around 30% of a tannery鈥檚 waste.

ELFA Recycled聽Leather VS Traditional Leather Hides

ELFA Recycled Leather聽Traditional Leather Hides
Less wastage,more cost effective

Cut from rolls 1400mm wide.Length is long

Leather hides(at widest point): 914.4mm

Length:2286mm

Resistant to cracking,tearing and puncturing

Its unique core reinforment textile provides

high performance,improving its quality and

feel.

Can be prone to cracking ,tearing and

puncturing, especially split leather

More durable聽– Scuff and scratch resistant

thanks to an easy to keep clean pu coating.

聽Prone to scuffs and scratches.
Up to 50% lighter – Helping transport

Companies save on fuel consumption and

reduce their carbon footprint.

Weight disadvantage, particularly to

transportation applications.

Uniform texture聽– Made from leather fibersand given an artificial pattern for a consistent

Flawless finish and feel.

Inconsistent texture – Made from hides which

can be looser and more stretchable in the

Belly and flank areas and relatively tight

Across the backbone.

Uniform shade聽– Made from leather fiberspigmented for a consistent flawless color.Inconsistent Shade – Each hide is different

and has a unique grain texture.This results in

the dyes and finishes penetrating the grain in

Varying degrees.

聽More flexible and easier to sew.Can be fairly rigid limiting applications
Wipe clean with a damp cloth聽– No chemical

cleaners or costly cleaning maintenance

Needed to continually look good.

time and costs.

Particular.

Why聽Recycled leather can be better than traditional leather锛

Recycled聽leather outperforms traditional leather in several key areas.

Price

Compared with Traditional Leather hides , price is more competitive .

Environmentally friendly

Made from discarded wet blue leather off-cuts that normally end up in landfill ,together with high pressure water jets to force the natural leather fibers through an integral textile reinformancement core.It is a clean eco-friendly material ,no chemicals (no adhesives ,no resins), what`s more ,to reduce聽the pollution of wet blue leather hides` cuttings and trimmings to environment.

Higher Cutting Yield

More cost efficient for many applications,聽cut from a roll not from hides for less wastage and reduced聽costs聽聽( Recycled聽leather is supplied in rolls resulting in only 5% cutting wastage compared to up to 40% wastage for leather hides聽.)

Safety聽Fire Proof聽standards

Excellent flame retardancy endorsed by British and European fire and safety standards.

Better for product consistency

Manufactured from leather fibres so unlike leather hides has no natural defects and results in minimal batch-to-batch variation聽for a flawless finish.

Customisable design options

Bespoke colours are available plus various grains聽and the ability to emboss with company or brand logos.

Significant fuel savings

Up to 50% lighter聽than traditional leather,聽recycled leather is critical in helping transport applications to lower emissions, fuel consumption and reduce their carbon footprint.

Reduces landfill costs

Less wastage reduces landfill levies

High durability

Recycled聽leather`s reinforced textile core enables the leather to resist tearing and gives it greater elasticity. Ideal for heavy use applications from passenger seating to handbags and wallets.

Easy care

Simply wipes clean with a dampened cloth, thereby avoiding the need for costly cleaning products and maintenance.

聽 聽Sustainability :

We are the people behind the sustainable leather alternative.We create what people want and what the planet deserves.There is no doubt that nature`s resources are limited .Over-consumption is taking its toll on our planet.And there is an urgent need to recycle more and waste less.So that`s exactly what we do !聽A significant amount of leather is unused and often destined for landfill.We reduces that problem by recycling tonnes of leather hides rather than wasting them.

Our commitment to sustainability:

To minimise our environmental footprint and ensure we`re making efficient use of the world`s scarce natural resources,we focus on three key areas.Such as Increasing recycled content,Lowering carbon emissions,reducing use of earth`s scarce resources.

Why need Recycled Leather on the planet?

With the聽aggravation of environment pollution on the international agenda,combined聽with a focus on scarce resources and protecting animals,recycled leather has entered the scene as a force for good.What`s more ,now a lot of famous brands specifically have long sought sustainable materials from recycled fabric to recycled leather,for example ,Nike used recycled fabric for shoes,named flyknit,now they are using recycled leather,named flyleather. Recycled Leather`s partner with leading brands from all of the world to help them to create extraordinary products and memorable client experiences,while聽improving聽the sustainability.
