E-Leather is made from recycled leather fibre, unlike any other material in the market.
The process incorporates off cuts of wet-blue waste leather direct from the tannery which would normally be sent to landfill. E-Leather uniquely combines these fibres via a heavily patented process to engineer and reform the fibre into a soft, high quality embossable finished material. E-leather is made in Peterborough in the UK.
The patented process of high pressure water jets force the fibres through an integraltextile reinforcement core. This is the essential difference to “bonded” leather or “leather board” often referred to as “recycled leather”- where adhesives and resins are used to bond the fibres together into a sheet of material. E-Leather is unique and does not use this process.
