NEAR LEATHER is a vegan and ethical leather made from plant based fibers from plants native to the UAE.
Animal skin leathers, unethical, contribute greatly to global carbon emissions and are highly toxic. Tanneries use a range of chemicals to treat the animal skin to create all the characteristics of the leather as we know it.
Faux leather and other plastic based leather imitation materials can be toxic and cause harm to the environment during their production and use.
In the UAE alone, over 400 million kilograms of plant fiber is being discarded every year. NEAR LEATHER can transform this waste-by-product of the local farming industry into a more sustainable and ethical choice of leather for handbags, small leather goods, furniture, and the automotive industry.
